Capes for Courage Run/Walk set for Aug. 4 in Bothell

The Northshore Senior Center will be hosting the 3rd Annual Kaiser Permanente Bothell 5K Capes for Courage Run/Walk on Aug. 4.

Formerly the Wranglers 5K, the event benefits the Wrangler Inclusion Program and will begin at 9 a.m. at the Northshore Adult Day Health Center, 10212 E. Riverside Drive, Bothell. Registration fee of $30 can be paid online at https://runsignup.com/Race/WA/Bothell/Bothell5K.

The all-community event is open to walkers and runners of all abilities, and a one-mile option will be available.

“Show your superhero style as you coast through this easy and level course along the banks of the Sammamish River in downtown Bothell,” reads a press release. Chip timing will be used, and all registered participants receive a complimentary race T-shirt.

Thanks to a generous donor, the first $5,000 in donations made to the event (apart from registration fees) will be matched. Donations will be accepted on the race website, and all proceeds from the race will directly benefit the Northshore Senior Center’s Wrangler Inclusion Program.

Promoting “fun for all,” the Northshore Wranglers Inclusion Program provides inclusion, fun and friendship for individuals of all ages and abilities through year-round inclusion, recreation, skills and socialization opportunities, as well as advocacy and family support. Founded in 1998 and serving Bothell, Woodinville, Kenmore and other surrounding communities, programming is a nonprofit service of the Health and Wellness Department of the Northshore Senior Center.
