Deck the Heels 5K Night Run
December 11 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Held the second Saturday of December each year, The Deck the Heels 5k is not only a fun race, but, it is also a huge holiday extravaganza with Santa and Mrs. Clause, food, hot chocolate, music, and more! And of course there’s medals for those who complete the race. The race begins and ends at the Claire Parker Foundation headquarters at 1019 9th Street Altavista, VA. All proceeds go to filling care boxes and toy boxes.
Glow-in-the-Dark accessories will be available at packet pickup. We encourage runners to “Deck” themselves out for this festive Christmas event.
We are also pleased to announce the addition of the VIRTUAL Deck the Heels 5k for those that are unable to join us in person. Virtual participants are able to choose a 5k course and submit their time to our Results page.
The Claire Parker Foundation was created in memory of our daughter, Claire. We provide ongoing care and emotional support for children and families battling pediatric cancer. To find out more about the work we do visit: claireparkerfoundation.org
