    Kids Helping Kids is proud to hold its inaugural 5k this June!

    The KHK Color Race was created to celebrate health, the beauty of nature, and the gift of family. We wish we could hold this event in person, but your health is our top priority so this year, it will be a virtual event. Many features of a typical 5K are still in place and we have also added an element of fun with color cannons! All walkers and runners are welcome to join us during the week of June 22nd. If you register by June 10th, we will personally deliver a color cannon to your mailbox. Please visit our official race page website for more details.

     

    Lace-up those sneakers and don’t forget to stretch! See you at the finish line!

     

    KHK's inaugural 5k will be a week-long event to accommodate everyone's schedule. Families are encouraged to register together and it is asked that only adults set off the color cannons at the "finish line". Each runner in Fairfield County, CT will be given a color cannon to pop off at the "finish line" to provide a fun and celebratory finish to your 5k. This virtual 5k allows participants to run/walk whenever and wherever they would like over the course of the week. Each person's results can then be submitted to this website and winners will be announced on social media! 

     

    Join the entire Kids Helping Kids community for a colorful week as we run/walk to raise money for the organization and show that we are stronger together! 

     

    At Kids Helping Kids, our mission is to develop leadership skills among middle and high school age students through youth-led service projects. We empower students to have a proactive attitude toward change by taking their passion and turning it into action to benefit low-income children in the community. Every project is youth inspired, managed and led. This model helps students build 21 st Century skills in communication, relationships and collaboration, critical thinking and decision making, and initiative and self-direction while working in groups to fulfill many local and global community needs. This unique approach shows students the power they have to make an impact in the world and in the lives of others.

     

    Over 5,000 kids from 132 local schools have been involved with KHK because KHK gives students a voice, the tools, the belief in themselves and a path to make a difference now. Our vision is to help meet needs in our community while expanding our volunteers’ learning and involvement around social issues they care about. By developing leadership and social responsibility in our youth, we instill critical knowledge; leadership skills and empathy needed to enable the next generation to flourish. As KHK grows, we hope to expand our reach, helping all kids realize their full potential as leaders and change-makers.
