Newcastle Fit Family Fun Run is Saturday
Posted on 08/01/2017

The whole family is invited to the Newcastle Fit Family Fun Run at Lake Boren Park Aug. 5. The free run/walk will raise awareness about childhood obesity by educating both kids and parents on ways they can stay healthy. 

The approximately 1.5-mile run/walk begins and ends at Lake Boren Park with activity and information stations along the way. Participants will receive a passport, with chances to fill it with stamps at each activity station along the route.

The event goes from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Volunteers are needed to help monitor the course, register participants, stamp passports, make buttons and more. Contact Wendy Kirchner at to get involved.

The event is presented by Newcastle Youth for Community Engagement (NYCE) in partnership with the City of Newcastle, Newcastle Library and the Coal Creek Family YMCA.
