Save the date for WCCC’s premier fundraiser and community event!

The FUN RUN began in 1980 as a small pre-Boston Marathon race for WCCC preschool children. Today, hundreds of children and families enjoy non-competitive races for kids ages 2-12, carnival games, face painting, refreshments, a silent auction and raffle, book and stuffed animal sales, and representatives from area independent schools, camps, and family-friendly businesses. Event proceeds benefit the WCCC’s Early Childhood and After School programs.

Entrance Fee

Included in the entrance fee is a racer number bib which allows a child to run in a race or races, play all of the carnival games as many times as they would like, and get their face painted. Fees are as follows:

  • Pre-Event (Online Payment) Entrance Fee for Children Ages 2-12: $15
  • Day-Of Entrance Fee for Children Ages 2-12: $17
  • Family Entrance Fee (for families with 4 or more children): $55

Grown-ups and children under 2 are free!
