UTICA- The Boolermaker kids run encourages youth to take on healthy habits.
The free, Halloween themed run took youth ages 4-12 through the Utica Zoo in costume.
This run is part of the Boilermaker Road Races Community Outreach program aimed at encouraging healthy habits at a young age.
Those who participated said, whether they win or not, they still have fun! "It doesn't matter if I win or not, the important thing is everyone gets to win and it's a fair game!"
Organizers said this event is for the kids. "We do the Boilermaker and all the hard work and we can do stuff like this and give back to the community, especially the kids," said Marketing Director, Jordan Peters.
The Boilermaker is scheduled for July 12, 2020.
