Get your sneakers on and join the community for this year’s Cardinia Shire Community Fun Run.

Hosted by Aligned Leisure, Cardinia Shire Council and the Casey Cardinia Foundation, the 10 or five kilometre run aims to promote physical activity and support families to have fun outdoors.

No matter what age or ability, everyone is encouraged to participate on Sunday 1 March at Pakenham Racecourse in Tynong.

Not only does the day involve running, face painting, balloon twisting and tennis activities are sure to keep the kids entertained.

All entry fees from the event are donated directly to the Casey Cardinia Foundation, which plays a pivotal role in the local community by providing grants and financial assistance to residents of Casey and Cardinia shires.

Participants are also invited to create an optional fundraising page for the foundation.

For more information, or to register, head to the Cardinia Aligned Leisure website. Online registration closes Wednesday 26 February at 6pm.
