Sunday: Kids 4 Sports run benefits youth teams

The Kids 4 Sports Foundation will hold its third annual 5K run at 9 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at Burgess Park in Menlo Park.

Online registration for the Fall Dash is available on active.com at $30 for adults, $20 for kids 18 and under.

The Fall Dash two-loop course will take runners and walkers from Burgess Park and on to streets through local neighborhoods. "We designed a flat, fast course in a location that would be easily accessible to kids and adults from all sides of Menlo Park," says Kids 4 Sports co-founder Sally Osterberg.

The event is a fundraiser to benefit youth team sports in local communities, including east Menlo Park and East Palo Alto.

This summer the foundation helped send an East Palo Alto basketball team to a regional tournament. The foundation also donated $7,000 to help pay for new helmets and registration fees for scholarship kids in the Menlo-Atherton Pop Warner football league.
