Positive Impact for Kids 5K presented by Duke Health @ Southern Community Park
Dec 2 @ 1:00 pm – 2:45 pm

My name is Leanne Joyce and I am the 18-year-old President of the 501(c)(3) Positive Impact for Kids. I have raised over $100,000 and purchase items from pediatric hospital wish lists to improve the hospital experience for children and teens.

The Chapel Hill Police Department and Orange County Sheriff’s Office are partnering with Positive Impact for Kids to facilitate our second annual 5K (walk/run) fundraiser and Chase the Chief Fun Run for kids. Chief Chris Blue of the Chapel Hill Police Department will give the kids (age 12 and under) a one minute head start and then race them in a clock timed one mile run. All pre-registered fun run participants will receive a prize!

Top prizes will be presented to the 5K first, second, and third place male and female by Fleet Feet and Omega Sports. The 5K will start at 1pm and the fun run will start at 2:15pm. The 5K will be professionally chip timed and managed by Cardinal Race Services.

Join us for music, food, silent auction and lots of fun! All proceeds will benefit Duke Children’s Hospital and UNC Children’s Hospital.
