The Tinsel Toes 5K is Saturday, December 14th at 5:30 through Downtown Battle Creek.

The Tinsel Toes 5K is a family fun run that is a fundraiser for Girls on the Run (GOTR) of Calhoun County. All proceeds from registrations and sponsors will go directly to GOTR of Calhoun County to fund scholarships. Their mission is to inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum, which creatively integrates running. GOTR is a national program designed to help girls take charge of their lives and develop an “I can” attitude towards challenges and life in general. Along with the curriculum, girls are coached to complete a 5k in May. As a part of the GOTR experience the girls are fitted for and receive shoes, shirts, and benefit from highly trained volunteers and coaches. To fulfill the vision of Girls on the Run no girl is ever turned away from the program regardless of financial ability to pay. It costs around $125 per girl. Therefore, GOTR needs community support to be able to continue to provide this amazing life changing experience to ALL girls of Calhoun County. Tinsel Toes 5k is one way we are raising those funds.

The Tinsel Toes 5K is a family fun run through the Festival of Lights and the beautiful Michigan Avenue in Downtown Battle Creek. Participants will enjoy a festive holiday atmosphere both before the race and during. Tinsel Toes is partnering with Light the Night for even more post race activities free of charge including: scavenger hunts, hot chocolate, visits with Santa and horse driven rides through downtown.

Prizes will be given to the most festive, the most festive family, the most lit up as well as the best Christmas sweater.
