More than 11,000 children in Washington state are in the foster care system. As teenagers in foster care grow, they outgrow and wear out clothes quickly. The SOCKTOBERDASH 5K/10K is here to raise proceeds and to provide new socks and undies to Spokane teens in need. Socks and undies are needed for both boys and girls.
Support local teens in 4 easy steps!
Step 1: Register.
Step 2: Purchase new and packaged socks and undies for teens (optional).
Step 3: Wear crazy socks (if you have them).
Step 4: Come run 5K or 10K and have fun!
Prizes will be given at random to runners wearing the most amazing socks.
(While we are asking for donations for socks AND undies, we will only be giving prizes for cool socks. We hope you understand that we can't give out awards for cool undies. You are encouraged to wear cool undies, but please... keep them covered. This is a family event, folks.)
