Kid's Fun Run being held in October in Milford

Global Healthcare Management is hosting its fifth annual Kids Fun Run at Alexandria Park in Milford on Oct. 13.

This free event, sponsored by Global Healthcare's CEO Jon Paul Letko is open to all families in the community and aims at getting kids excited about exercise and physical activity.

"As a father of two young boys, I know the importance of encouraging activity and exercise in a fun and exciting way for our children," he said. "For many children, it will be their first experience participating in a run, and I hope to make that first impression a positive one."

The Fun Run is a 1- or 2-mile run around Alexandria Park. Following the run, there will be activities and games for all. DJ Sean Moyer will be providing musical entertainment, while the kids can play games, win tickets for prizes, and enjoy face painting by Brushed with Love from Stroudsburg, Pa. In addition, the event is adding something new this year — a 70-foot blow up obstacle course.

"We are coming up on our fifth year, and every year I see the excitement and enthusiasm on so many kids faces as they set out for their run around the park," Letko said. "The very first year, I had this idea to do a fun run for the community, but I really did not know what to expect. When the day came and I saw dozens of kids, parents and grandparents running and smiling alongside each other, I knew we couldn't stop there.

"This event has continued to multiply in numbers over the years and we encourage everyone to join us for a fun day at the park and see for themselves."

The rain date is Oct. 14. Registration begins at 10 a.m. and the race starts at 10:30.

Global Healthcare Management's employees volunteer their time every year for this event. "I am so proud of my staff for coordinating and volunteering their time and energy to make this event possible, year after year," Letko said. "All of us at Global Healthcare invite families to come out and join us at the fun run this year."
