Let’s get moving! Join weSPARK Cancer Support Center for our 10th annual Run/Walk at Lake Balboa (Woodley Park) on Sunday, January 26th! Grab your friends and family and get moving for a great cause. Whether you are an avid runner or would rather just Netflix and chill – there is something for all athletic abilities!
5K and 10K races offer their own chip-times courses around scenic Lake Balboa. Each course is fast and flat and great for the experienced runner or the casual walker – dogs and strollers welcome on both courses!
