Healthy Start Weekend October 19-20

Organizers of two significant, family-friendly community events invite the Dunwoody community to come together for a “Healthy Start Weekend” October 19-20.  First up is Dunwoody Elementary School’s October 19 Tour de Dunwoody – Family Bike Event followed on October 20 by the Rotary Club of Dunwoody’s  RunDunwoody – 5K/1 Mile Fun Run/Tot Trot.

The fun begins Saturday, October 19 with three ride options featured in the 3rd annual Tour de Dunwoody.  Registration and check-in begins at 7:30 a.m. and the main ride begins at 8:30 am sharp in the parking lot of Dunwoody Elementary School. The main “Tiger” route is a 3-Mile, police escorted ride starting and ending at DES and riding through Dunwoody with your family.  There will also be two shorter, on-campus “Cub” routes for new or younger riders beginning at 8:45 a.m.

Connecting families, DES and the community, this unique family biking event features fun and challenge for biking enthusiasts of all levels while offering reminders about bike safety and awareness.  Register today for this family bike event at www.dunwoodypto.com.  Please contact Katie Scharf at klewis00@yahoo.com for more information or to inquire about event sponsorship.  Proceeds benefit Dunwoody Elementary’s Tiger Fund.

On Sunday, October 20, the Rotary Club of Dunwoody presents the 4th annual RunDunwoody – 5K/1 Mile Fun Run/Tot Trot.  Registration and runner check-in begins at 7:00am in the Target parking lot at 100 Perimeter Center Place, Atlanta, GA 30346.  The 5K is certified as a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier and follows a fast and scenic route, spanning the Perimeter Flyover Bridge with spectacular view of Perimeter Summit.  The 1 Mile Fun Walk/Run offers fun for all ages with prizes for the top male and female age 12 and under. Young children (ages 2 – 5) are invited to participate in the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Tot Trot.

As a special treat kids of all ages will enjoy the opportunity to visit with our members of the Dunwoody police force and firefighters and explore equipment and vehicles on display.  To register and for information about a fun-filled morning – live music, prizes, awards, great food, Kid’s Zone activities and more – for a good cause go to www.rundunwoody.net or contact Kathy Brandt or Kelly Hundley at info@rundunwoody.net.  Proceeds benefit the service focus of the Rotary Club of Dunwoody – education, public health, public safety, locally and globally.

Make a Healthy Start with your family and friends this fall.  Whether you enjoy biking or running, plan to participate in Dunwoody’s first Healthy Start Weekend, October 19-20, 2013.
