Tiny Troops Soccer Angel Run Virtual 1K

Join us for the second annual Tiny Troops Soccer Angel Run Virtual 1k on October 23-24! Yes, you read that right – a ONE k! It’s important that our little ones get to participate in an activity that’s just for them while keeping them active and giving them a fun outlet! Participants will have the option to run or walk a 1k outdoors with their family either around their neighborhood or join us at Northeast Creek Park at 10 am on October 24 (Parents – feel free to make your run a 5k!), or complete 200 steps indoors. A portion of every registration goes to the children of Angels of America’s Fallen (AOAF). AOAF serves children of fallen members of all branches of the military and first responders. It offers positive outlets for the children’s grief during the entire period of the most crucial developmental years. You can read more about their work here: https://aoafallen.org/about/what-we-do/.

ALL participants will receive a commemorative Tiny Troops Soccer Angel Run FIDGET SPINNER medal and a downloadable running bib (that you can color if you’d like!), with an awesome race t-shirt available for purchase!

We can’t wait to have you join us! Be sure to post pictures and videos on our Facebook page!
