In 2015, GrowSmart took lead on planning Celebrating Children. This yearly event highlights the healthy development of children through physical activity. It's also been an event to honor Child Abuse Prevention Month and Month of the Military Child. As a way to promote a healthy lifestyle for families, the event includes a Fun Run around Mt. Trashmore Park. GrowSmart invites community organizations to participate to showcase their programs and services for families in Virginia Beach.
Attendees can participate in a 1-mile walk/run around Mt. Trashmore, enjoy live entertainment & amusements, and visit resource booths. Every Fun Run participant will receive a medal! This event is 100% FREE, thanks to sponsorships.
