Fun Run! June 2016

Summer is here and that means it’s time for the Craig Wilson Memorial Crown of Queen Anne Fun Run/Walk, renamed this year in memory of an amazing Helpline and community volunteer and activist, Craig Wilson, who passed away last January. Get out your running shoes, start stretching, and join 600 of your friends and neighbors for this exciting and beloved community event. All ages and ability levels are welcome! It’s the most fun you’ll have at a fundraising event; all proceeds benefit the Queen Anne Helpline and neighbors in need.

The 5.5k (3.4 miles) Fun Run starts at 8 a.m. on July 9th and kicks off Queen Anne Days, a weekend long celebration of our amazing community. We’ve made some slight changes to the route this year to make it easier for everyone. The race will start at 8th Ave West and McGraw in front of Queen Anne Lutheran Church, the same location where day-of registration and T-shirt pickup takes place.

Register in advance online: FUN RUN REGISTRATION
Or visit us at the following locations (where you can also pick up your T-shirt if you already registered):

  • Queen Anne Farmers Market (Thursdays, 3:30 – 7) — 6/23, 6/30 and 7/7
  • Magnolia Farmers Market (Saturdays, 10 – 2) — 6/25 and 7/2
  • Trader Joe’s Plaza (Sunday, 6/26 from 10 – 2)

Of course, it takes a village of volunteers to make this event happen. If you would like to help with registration, sign up here, or to volunteer the day of the event sign up here.

This event would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. A huge thank you to Metropolitan Market, Title Sponsor, and HomeStreet Bank, Presenting Sponsor, as well as many other local businesses who provided financial support and who donated raffle items and prizes.

Your participation helps keep families in their homes, food on the table, and everyone’s basic needs met. We can’t do it without you – thank you!!
