BRIGHTON — Re­bound Child and Youth Ser­vices in­vites you to Brighton’s lovely Presqu’ile Pro­vin­cial Park Oct. 15 for its third an­nual Red Run.

Sub­ti­tled Get­ting Anger On-TRAC, the event of­fers the chance for walks or runs on 1K, 5K or 11K routes.

“It’s a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for fam­i­lies, dog walk­ers and bud­ding run­ners alike to en­joy a morn­ing stroll or dash through a beau­ti­ful park and, at the same time, sup­port the suc­cess of chil­dren and youth par­tic­i­pat­ing in the On-TRAC Pro­gram,” the press re­lease said.

On-TRAC is an in­te­grated pre­ven­tio­nand-in­ter­ven­tion pro­gram for young peo­ple aged 12 to 25 who are ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dif­fi­cul­ties with ag­gres­sion at home, at school or in the com­mu­nity. It makes avail­able to these youth and their fam­i­lies such re­sources as anger- and emo­tion­alaware­ness ed­u­ca­tion, skills for build­ing healthy re­la­tion­ships and coun­selling to as­sist change so youth can stay On-TRAC for suc­cess.

Event co-or­di­na­tor Rachel Ed­wards called it a fun run for a great cause, adding that — be­sides the run­ning and walk­ing — the event in­cludes swag bags for ev­ery­one, prizes for the win­ners, face paint­ing, scav­enger hunts and more.

Reg­is­tra­tion is $35 for adults, and $25 for stu­dents and se­niors. You can sign up by vis­it­ing www.run­ningroom.com and search­ing for Red Run, or call 289-9284112 for more in­for­ma­tion.
