The Toby Keith Foundation, Andy Alligator’s and Ideal Homes are hosting the 2nd Annual OK Kids Korral 5k and one mile run/walk on October 13. The proceeds help support operations of OK Kids Korral, a cost-free home-away-from-home for children battling cancer.

This year, the sanctioned 5k will start and stop at Andy Alligator’s in Norman with an added bonus. Every registrant will received a free Andy Alligator’s wristband in their race bag along with a free t-shirt and medal. Other activities include giant slides provided by Allison’s Fun Inc. and a touch a truck opportunity that morning.

The 5k serves as an opportunity for the community to help support the services offered at OK Kids Korral.

“We see the journey our kids take while they are fighting cancer and so we encourage everyone to either run the 5k or come out in their boots (literally) and walk a mile with us in celebration of every child battling cancer,” said Lauren Polchinski, development supervisor at The Toby Keith Foundation.

To register for the 5k or to run/walk the 1 mile, visit okkidskorral5k.eventbrite.com. Online registration closes on October 11. Currently, it is $30 through October 11th to register and will be $35 the day of registration. Groups of 10 or more are only $20.
