PORTAGE (WKZO) -- Coming up this Friday, it's a run for the kids in Kalamazoo. The YMCA's Healthy Kids Run will be held to help spread the values of healthy living, and also just to have some fun. The YMCA's Don Seibert says that the event will begin at 4:45 PM at Portage West Middle School. It's a one mile run for most of the participants.
"Check in ias at 4:45, and we start up about 5:30 with our stretch," Seibert told WKZO. "Slappy is going to be out there to help us get the kids all stretched out so we can start a run in the area."
There will also be a 150 yard run after the main event for the toddlers. The entire family's invited to come out and participate. You can register at the Kalamazoo YMCA's website.
