Runhers, a women’s health and lifestyle organization headquartered in OKC, is partnering with The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Command to host the 2012 Third Annual Princess Run and Little Dude Dash Festival at 2 p.m. on April 1 in the Boathouse District on the Oklahoma River.
The nationally renowned OKC Boathouse District will be transformed into a fairy tale village on April 1 for the event. The Princess Run is a frolicking, whimsical 1.2 mile run/walk/stroll event designed to delight girls 12 and under while encouraging a healthy and happy lifestyle. The Little Dude Dash is a “wicked cool” half-mile run/walk for boys. Proceeds will benefit The Salvation Army Central Oklahoma and The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club.
The event will be held at 2 p.m. on April 1 on the grounds that include the Devon Boathouse and the Chesapeake Finish Line Tower. All venues will be open for tours and youth activities sponsored by OKC RIVERSPORT will be held. A full schedule of activities along with course map and village layout will be released on March 1.
“The Princess Run and Little Dude Dash Festival is designed to celebrate and delight in our youth. On this day, these kids are our focus and with this being a kids’ only event (parents can run w/kids), our creativity and imagination allows us to be as playful as they are with this festival,” says runhers special projects director Sheila Kidder. “We want the event to entertain, engage and celebrate our amazing kids while offering support and awareness for all the great things that the Salvation Army OKC does for our youth.”
“Fitness and heath is an important priority for our Salvation Army Boys & Girls Club, so this partnership not only thrills us, but fits with our mission of ‘Doing the Most Good,’” Salvation Army Central Oklahoma Area Commander Major Dan Proctor said.
The festival is a free and open event. Visit princessrun.com for details.
