Support Fridley Kids in Action
Fridley Kids in Action is a program that helps students in the Fridley Public Schools to understand the value of taking action to make a positive impact in their own lives as well as the world around them. This run is open to the public and all proceeds from the run will go toward Stevenson and Hayes for the kids action plans. In the past, students have participated in service learning experiences such as packing food for victims of Haiti’s earthquake, collecting shoes to be delivered to those in need in Africa, and walking to support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
The goal of this race is to raise money to support future projects like these, while giving students the opportunity to take personal action to improve their physical fitness. The course is a 5K (3.1 Mile) loop around Commons Park,
Fridley Middle School, Fridley High School, and Fridley Community Center.

More About Commons Park
Is it possible to have it all? Commons Park comes close: tennis courts, ball diamonds, football/soccer fields, ice for skating and hockey, a picnic shelter and a playground. And best of all, in winter: a sledding hill.
