Koko 5K Fun Run and 1 Mile Walk to return in Sept.

After a 2 year hiatus due to Covid, the annual Koko 5K Fun Run and 1 Mile walk is back. The event will take place on Sunday, September 18th at 9 am at East Brandywine Park in Downingtown. Run the 5K loop through the park, or choose the 1-mile walk – a great choice for kids. This year there will be cash prizes for first, second, and third place. There’s more than just running. The event will feature a DJ and a moonbounce and face painting for the kids. It is a fun day for the whole family. One of the most popular parts of the day is the raffle baskets. There are expected to be over 15 baskets to take a chance on.

The Koko 5K is named in honor of Edward Kokoszka who passed suddenly on December 12, 2015. Ed was a wonderful father, husband, son, brother, and friend to all of those who knew him. He was so positive and always encouraged everyone he knew. Proceeds from the race go towards a scholarship for a student who attends Neumann University, Ed’s alma mater.
Interested participants can register online at https://koko5k.weebly.com/ Runners and walkers who register before August 15th will be guaranteed a race T-shirt.
