After careful consideration, Children’s Health has made the difficult decision to suspending all events through the end of May, including Red Balloon Run and Ride, effective immediately. This decision did not come easy and was based on our assessment of the increasing number of advisories and input from local and state health officials.
The Red Balloon Run & Ride is a fun run, walk & cycling event with lots of free family-friendly activities for participants to enjoy. With all proceeds benefitting Children's Health, participants are encouraged to fundraise to help make life better for children. As a pledge-based fundraising campaign, the event designed for all ages with 100% of the funds raised going directly to the program or department of your choosing at Children's Health.
The 10th annual event will be held April 25, 2020 at Children's Medical Center Plano. Participation options include:
- 1k fun run/walk
