Warwick Playground Dreams will host their first “Dream Dash Walk, Run & Roll 5k” on Sat., Nov. 10 at 9 a.m. Like the playground for which it is raising funds, this 5k will welcome everyone to participate, whether running, walking or rolling using a wheelchair or stroller. The Dream Dash’s 5k will wind through scenic Wickham Woodlands.
The course has been carefully planned to ensure its accessibility for those using wheels and is fully paved with no steep slopes. After the 5k, the “Fun Run,” open to children ages three and up, will take place near the Wickham Manor house.
Entrants who register early will receive a pre-registration discount. For a limited time, racers can register online for $25. Race day registration will be $35. Interested participants can visit www.warwickplaygrounddreams.org to register. Pre-registration closes on Fri., Nov. 9 at 12 noon. Registration will include water, a continental breakfast, and a keepsake water bottle.
All proceeds from the 5k will be used to purchase materials and equipment for an inclusive playground in Stanley-Deming Park. Warwick Playground Dreams is a non-profit organization made up of a committee of volunteers from all across the Town of Warwick. Their goal has been to bring a community-designed, community-built, ADA-accessible playground to Warwick.
