We Run Because We CARE

CARE Community Center is pleased to bring you Run For A Child’s Hunger again this year as we continue to eliminate childhood hunger in Northwest Arkansas. 1 in 4 children face food insecurity on a daily basis. This is a serious issue that is right in our backyard and these children need our help. 

Run For A Child’s Hunger has been fighting childhood hunger for 15 years with our run. The 5K and 10K courses are mostly flat and well-marked with great shade and excellent traffic control. There is also a 1 Mile CAREacter Fun Walk so dress up as your favorite character and come walk with us to fight childhood hunger. Our experienced CARE team is going to put on an event that is guaranteed fun for the whole family! 

Other Activities

FREE Family FunZone! 
Near the finish line of the 5K and 10k races will be a FREE Family FunZone for children 12 years old and under. 
The Family FunZone will be open from 7:00am-10:00am on event day and will be filled with fun, free activities, and inflatables!
