KidsPeace Postpones Family Fun Mud Run  

SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. – Due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy and the absence of electricity on the KidsPeace Campus, the 5k & 1-Mile Family Fun Mud Run is postponed until Sat., April 27, 2013.

Our campus serves more than 300 children who live with us 24/7 and receive life-changing treatment. They are the reason that we are holding this charity race, and it seems only appropriate that we would put their needs first. Holding the race this weekend would take resources away at a time when they are needed most. I hope that you understand and appreciate that your support of KidsPeace changes lives for the better!

We teach and model resilience and so, the race will happen!  If you have any questions, please contact Gina at 610-799-8071 or by e-mail at or Patrick Slattery at 610-799-8326;

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to seeing you in the spring for a great event!
