We invite the dedicated runners and walkers throughout Buffalo to bundle up and join us for the Hybrid version of our annual Penguin Run 5k. Now more than ever, Cradle Beach is in need of support from our community to guide us through these difficult times. Funds from the Penguin Run will allow us to fulfill our mission through our upcoming Respite and Summer Camp Programs. Your support will allow us to safely and creatively serve the children and families of Cradle Beach.
For a set price of $25 participants will have the option to complete the walk/run themselves (DIY) or meet up with friends and family at Ellicott Creek Park on Saturday, February 27th between 9am-12pm.
DIY- Which means participants will complete the race on their own time, at their own pace and on a route of their choosing. A race swag bag will be mailed to them
Meet Up- Which means participants choose to meet up at Ellicott Creek Park on Saturday, February 27th between 9am-12pm to pick up their race bag and complete the race.
