kids running

Our third annual PRAI 5K is for anyone wanting to run, walk, or crawl their way to the finish line!

The PRAI 5k is our third annual community fundraiser dedicated to raising funds for research and education into PANS & PANDAS; A childhood neuroimmune disorder that is estimated to effect as 1 in 200 children. This year we look forward to a fun Mascot Run right before the Kids Fast Dash across the football field with some of Richmond's favorite mascots including Nutzy, Parker, Kickeroo, Joey from Launch, Elsa and Star Wars Characters!
