THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED. NEW DATE WILL BE DETERMINED. 

The Wisconsin Council of Problem Gambling, Drug Free Communities of Fond du Lac County, and Fond du Lac Area YScreen are partnering for the 4th Annual 5K Run/Walk “Start the Conversation” on April 18, 2020 at Lakeside Park in Fond du Lac.

5K Brochure

The primary goal for the 4th annual 5K Run/Walk is to continue the conversation about mental health, addiction and suicide prevention. This time of year was chosen because March is Gambling Awareness month, April is Addiction Awareness month, and May is Mental Health Awareness month. We hope to have folks return from last year as well as encourage first-time participants to experience that accomplishment of completing the 5K. The opportunity to have our furry dog friends also participate only enhances the event.
This is an event for the entire family. Bring your dog to join the fun!

To register for the 5K Run/Walk please visit http://ow.ly/vgTk30qbQX5, or Click on Tickets on this event page.

Pre-race registration packet pickup will be 4pm-6pm Friday, April 17th in the lobby at Agnesian HealthCare, a member of SSM Health 430 E. Division Street; Fond du Lac
