Kick in For Kids Virtual 5K
Kick in for Kids is a favorite, annual community event that supports the Jame L. McKeown Boys & Girls Club. To keep the tradition alive this year & raise needed funds for our kids, the Boys & Girls Club has decided to go virtual!

Did you know that in the midst of the COVID-19 public health crisis, the Boys & Girls Club is still there for our community? Nearly overnight, the resilient staff team transformed its programs and built out a “virtual Clubhouse” offering a variety of ways to keep kids and families healthy, safe and engaged during the “safer at home” advisory. In addition, they have been connecting with community resources to meet the basic needs of our most vulnerable families.
However, the crisis has also dried up nearly all of our funding sources including childcare, facility rentals and three of their special events. When families get back to work in the coming months, they are going to rely on the Club more than ever before and they want to prepare as best they can to meet those needs. To do so, they need the support of our community!
While we can’t get together for this year’s Kick in for Kids 5K event, they are hoping you’ll still consider completing a 5K walk or run between May 3, 2020 and May 9, 2020 and making a donation to our Club.
