Celebrate Christmas in July with the 1st Annual 5K Dash and Splash Run/Walk on Saturday, July 15, 2017. Our fun yet challenging 5K will take place at Happiness Is Camping, a free residential camp for children with cancer and their siblings.

Bring your entire family to enjoy a great run, a post-race BBQ and pool party with live music and a special guest appearance by Santa Claus! Come in your running attire and bring your bathing suit and towel to beat the heat after your race.
