A Big Thank You From Candlelighters

September 23rd, 2011

Participants cross the finish line as Chet Buchanan and the crowd cheer during the 2011 Candlelighters 'Race for our Kids.'

This year’s Candlelighters ‘Race for our Kids’ with Chet Buchanan was a huge success, and we thank all of you for helping us make it such a great event! The 21st Annual “Race for our Kids” 5K race and walk and one mile stroll began and finished at Exploration Park at Mountain’s Edge. Special thanks to Boot Camp Las Vegas for the obstacle course – It a great addition to the event.

With more than 2,400 participants and a total of $150,000 raised, this year’s run was the biggest in the event’s history. Twenty-one years ago, the first Candlelighters ‘Race for our Kids’ had 75 runners and raised $750. We are proud to host this important annual event and be a part of its growth.
