SportsSignup is honored to be sponsoring the 4th annual Freihofer’s Junior 3K Run! This 1.86-mile road race is part of the 36th Annual Freihofer’s Run for Women and was designed to promote an active, healthy lifestyle for youth girls and boys ages 9-13. It begins at the Empire State Plaza in Downtown Albany at 11:15 a.m. on Saturday, May 31, 2014.
The Junior 3K Run is a professionally timed race and takes place on a closed course, which is actually a portion of the regular Freihofer’s Run for Women 5K course. All registered youth runners will receive a box of delicious Freihofer’s chocolate chip cookies and a finisher’s medal. The first 200 youth runners to register will also receive a specially designed 3K Run t-shirt. Special awards will be given to the First Place girl and boy overall, as well as to the top 3 girls and boys in multiple age groups: 9-10, 11-12 and 13.
Registration for the 2014 Freihofer’s Junior 3K Run is easy with SportsSignup’s 24/7 online system and registration is now open! The fee for each youth runner is $10 and an adult chaperone is allowed to run along with their youth runner for free.

As part of this year’s race, SportsSignup and Freihofer’s have created “Kids Helping Kids,” where SportsSignup will be donating $10 for each registration to the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center. This cause is very close to SportsSignup’s heart as daughter of our CEO, Anthony Bruno, is among the thousands of children in the Capital Region that have benefitted from the innovative treatments, exceptional doctors and caring staff at the Melodies Center. Last year we donated over $16,000 to the Melodies Center and we hope to donate even more this year!
