The event will feature a 5K walk/run through the Monticello/Arlington Heights area in Fort Worth, a children’s one-mile race, health fair and a silent auction after the race. Registration includes a Dri-Fit T-shirt and free breakfast from Blue Mesa.

The 5k registration fee is $20 until Oct. 8, when it increases to $25. The kids run registration fee is $15 in advance or $20 after Oct. 8.
