Communities In Schools of Greenbrier County (CISGC) is excited to announce our 2nd annual Fruity 5K Run/Walk and Kids’ Fun Course is scheduled for Saturday, May 17 in Lewisburg.

No matter your age or fitness level the Fruity 5K Run/Walk is for you! This unique, fun event will celebrate participants’ progress with “color toss” stations along the 5K course. For kids age 4 to 10 there will be a Kids’ Fun Course where they can join in the fun, moving through bursts of vibrant color between age appropriate obstacles. Registration for the Fruity 5K Run/Walk will begin at 7 a.m. and the Run/Walk will begin at 8 a.m. at the New River Community and Technical College lawn in Lewisburg. The Kids’ Fun Course will begin at 9 a.m.

As a means to encourage active, healthy lifestyles for our youth, there will be no registration fees for the Fruity 5K Run/Walk for youth age 18 and under and a free Kids’ Fun Course for youth age 4 to 10. Adult registration for the Fruity 5K is $20 before May 17 and $25 the day of the event.
