  5. River and Rails Run is coming up March 19th 2016

    About This Activity

    The RFKC River & Rails Run is a 5k/10k charity fun run with the registration proceeds going to the Royal Family Kids Camp.

    The goal of Royal Family Kids’ Camps (RFKC) is to create positive memories for children who have been abused and neglected in order to introduce them to God’s love. RFKC is an international non-profit organization and Cedar Park is excited to sponsor a local camp! Camp gives abused and neglected children an opportunity to enjoy one week when they can be safe and happy like all children should be. Because some of these children would be unable to succeed in a regular camp setting, RFKC is designed with their needs in mind and its staff is specially trained. Volunteers are dedicated to giving these children a week of happy memories and hope for the future.

    Caring counselors and surrogate “aunts and uncles”, “grandmas and grandpas” show them what it feels like to belong to a loving family. Each summer, these children can enjoy just being kids with swimming, rock climbing, arts & crafts, woodworking, singing, games, great meals and so much more. They feel safe, loved, special… and this week of positive memories can last a lifetime.

    Most of our campers have never celebrated their birthday, so we hold A Birthday Party for all of the Campers at the Camp with Birthday Boxes filled with small gifts to celebrate each and every child’s special day, a time of cake, games and presents where they are constantly affirmed through compassionate care and love.

    The event that starts at Haller Park in Arlington, WA and runs north on the Centennial Trail.  The 5k turn-around is near the gravel pit and the 10k turn-around is just south of Grandview Road.
