5K 4 the Kids

Join the 5K4TheKids Challenge 2021!

A 5K your way benefiting our Club Kids

Last year, our amazing BGCAA supporters helped us raise over $70,000 during BGCAA’s inaugural 5K for the Kids, which helped support Great Futures for all kids in Austin during a time when they needed it most. Running groups from around the Austin-area, community supporters, local celebrities, and our amazing BGCAA supporters came together and accepted the challenge for the kids. This summer, we are bringing back the 5K4Kids challenge and inviting you to keep the streak going for the kids.

Get active with your family, friends, and colleagues for a great cause. We promise, this year it is bigger and better than ever!
