FNBRF 5K & Kids Run

Sign Up for our 14th Annual FNBRF 5k

With nearly 50 sponsorships from commmunity partners and an average of 250 participants, the Shoe Some Love FNBRF 5K and Kids Run is a growing annual event for the FNBRF team.

Proceeds from the race provide funds to purchase tennis shoes for local kids in need in the River Falls and Prescott communities, with over 2,800 pairs of shoes and socks have been donated over the past six years.

Prior to the start of each school year, the Shoe Some Love FNBRF 5K Committee works with school representatives to provide children with a pair of brand name athletic shoes which tackles one of the most visible signs of poverty and helps children attend school in comfort and with dignity, better prepared to learn and play! By giving back to our community schools and families in need, FNBRF is proud to be a part of taking a step in the right direction for a successful school year.
