Run for a Blizzard.  Help Kids.

Blizzard Run is a 5k and Kids Fun Run events for the whole family to raise money for Kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital.  Every 5k participant gets a DQ Blizzard at the finish line and every kid in the fun run gets a DQ Ice Cream Sandwich at the finish line.  Every penny we raise in this race goes to kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital.  Our goal this year is to raise over $70,000 to support kids fighting for their lives.

5K Run/Walk

The race with the coolest finish: 1) Each participant gets a DQ Oreo Blizzard at the end of the race and 2) All the money we raise goes right to help kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital.

The Blizzard Run 5k (3.1 miles) is for the whole family.  We will have timing chips for accurate race time for serious runners. Walkers are also encouraged to join.  It will begin at Sunset Lane Park, continue through a neighborhood and end at the park. Pets and strollers are welcome!

USATF Certified Course.

Kids Fun Run

The obstacle course with the coolest finish: 1) Each kid gets a DQ Ice Cream sandwich at the end of the race and 2) We all raise money to help kids at Penn State Children’s Hospital.
