The 14th annual Rise and Shine 5K Walk and Run will be held on Sunday, April 28th with registration starting at 12:00 noon at Reverchon Park in Dallas. The event will include a 5K walk and run, The Johnny Stallings 1K Fun Run, and many activities for the whole family. The Rise and Shine benefits The Rise School of Dallas, a nationally recognized preschool specializing in the development and education of children, from ages eighteen months to six years, with Down Syndrome and other disabilities, as well as their typical peers. All proceeds from the run go directly to benefit the children who attend the school.
The real celebration begins after you cross the finish line. The Jolie Holliday band will kick off the Post-Race Party at 1:45pm. There will also be a DJ, clown, petting zoo, rock climbing wall, bungee trampolines, bounce houses, raffle, and free food and drinks.
