Start Training for the SanTan Sun Family Fun Run & 5k – Saturday, April 14, 2012

It’s that time of year again to start training for the 5th annual SanTan Sun Family Fun Run & 5k, presented by CoBiz Financial, on Saturday, April 14, 2012 at Tumbleweed Park in Chandler! The SanTan Sun Family Fun Run & 5k is one of the East Valley’s only 5k events.

Annually, the event promotes fitness and healthy lifestyles by giving participants an option to choose a casual fun run or a competitive and timed 5k.  The run is followed by family-friendly activities that inform the community on how to stay healthy. Participants also have the opportunity to win raffle prizes. Sponsors for 2012 include the SanTan Sun News, City of Chandler, and CoBiz Financial.

While the fun run & 5k promotes healthy living, participants also get the opportunity to support ICAN and contribute to positive changes in our community!

The cost for Fun Run registration is $10 per person or $20 per family, ages 10 and under are free, and $25 per person for the timed 5K which includes a limited edition dri-fit t-shirt. The cost increases to $30/person to participate in the 5K on the day of the event. Participants will also receive a goodie bag for their participation.
