Whiz Kids Oklahoma Selected as 2018 Redbud Classic Beneficiary!
We are so excited to be honored as the beneficiary of the 2018 Redbud Classic!
The Redbud Classic is an Oklahoma City tradition involving the community through fitness, fun and philanthropy. Celebrating its’ 36th anniversary, the Redbud Classic welcomes spring with a weekend of 10, 33, and 50 mile cycling tours, timed 5k and 10K runs, a 2- mile walk/stroller derby and a 1-mile Kids Fun Run, promoting healthy living for Oklahoma families and improving the quality of life for the community.
The 2018 event, to be held April 7-8, provides opportunities for businesses, schools, families and churches to enter our team competitions and encourages children to reach their fitness goals by participating in the free Kids Fun Run. We take pride in that Redbud attracts skilled, competitive runners along with the 2-mile walkers. The bike event is the only bike tour in the state that provides 50 miles of totally secured roads, enabling a safe ride for the experienced 50-milers as well as the novice 10-milers. Families are often seen running and cycling together and then celebrating at the post-race activities featuring food, activities and entertainment. The Redbud Classic names a local non-profit agency as beneficiary each year, with the beneficiary assisting by providing volunteers, and in return receiving a donation from the event proceeds. More than half a million dollars has been donated to the community over the past 35 years!
Stay tuned for opportunities to get involved in the 2018 Redbud Classic and encourage your friends and family to participate as well! We can’t think of a better way to support Whiz Kids Oklahoma!
