Kidrageous Golden Gallop 5K Run/Walk + Carnival
Sunday October 20, 2019

Run in honor or memory of someone you love!

Start your Sunday off on the “right” foot by attending the 6th Annual Kidrageous Golden Gallop. Run or walk with KDON’s DJ Visa, along the picturesque Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail. The run begins at the Custom House Plaza, with a mid-way turn-around at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Return to the plaza to enjoy music, dance, carnival fun, great food, beer and wine garden (age 21 and over) and more.

NEW TO THE GOLDEN GALLOP: TNT Teen Band, Polynesian dancers, Batman, before run Yoga Warm-up, and KDON’s DJ Visa (1 – 3pm).

Meet Visa and enjoy carnival favorites from year’s past, including: the My Museum Wheelie Mobile, Samz School of Music, the Seaside Police Department, succulent pots from Succulent Creationz, amazing strawberry DNA extractions, Star Wars costumed characters, and the beautiful MP Ballet dancers!

Every booth and activity at Kidrageous is in honor or memory of a local child with cancer.

Join Team Jacob’s Heart or Create a Team of Your Own — in Honor or Memory of a Loved One

Join Team Jacob’s Heart or create a team of your own, and run, gallop, or walk at the 6th annual Golden Gallop on Sunday October 20th. Purchase a ticket to attend the event and join Team Jacob’s Heart or select “I want to fundraise for this”  to become a team leader. Then share your page with family, friends, and colleagues through social media, email, and text. Ask them to purchase a ticket for the Golden Gallop and to make a donation to your page.
