Update on Run The Runway 2020

  1. Updates

After careful and difficult deliberation, Playworks Arizona will not hold our Run The Runway event in 2020.

We know many of you have been curious about the status of this event. Truthfully, this was not an easy decision to make but it was the right one for our organization this year: we did lots of evaluation to consider trying to run this event and ultimately we are not able to this year.

We are incredibly grateful for everyone who joined the run, volunteered at the event, and supported our mission of bringing the power of play to every kid through this event. While the run won’t be a part of our scheduled activities this year, we have our High Five Fundraising Breakfast quickly approaching in February 2020.

If you would like to continue to support Playworks’ events, please join us on February 18 at 7 a.m. for recess, breakfast, and inspiration! playworks.org/highfiveaz2020
