This CVHN signature event is fun for all ages, stroller-friendly, and will help raise funds that will be used to improve the health and well-being of kids in Walton and Okaloosa Counties. With more than 20 percent of children in both counties living below the poverty level, CVHN is a safety net for children who would otherwise have nowhere to turn for medical, dental and vision care.
Medals will be given for the fastest runners based on age groups and 2 grand prizes will be awarded for the largest registered team along with the team that brings in the most money.
All proceeds from this event will support programs at Children’s Volunteer Health Network, which spends 94 cents of every dollar raised to help local children. CVHN has two main programs: the CVHN Dental Clinic located in Santa Rosa Beach and a Mobile Dental Clinic that visits elementary schools and local charities.

Children's Volunteer Health Network, Inc. is a faith-based 501(c)(3) organization, established in 2005 in direct response to Walton and Okaloosa County's large population of low income families who are unable to access high quality health services due to the unavailability (or inadequacy) of insurance. The mission of CVHN is to improve the health and well-being of children in need. CVHN strives towards this mission by utilizing a network of over 95 local volunteer physicians, dentists and other healthcare providers. CVHN also operates the 'Just for Grins' Mobile Dental Clinic that visits local elementary schools and other non-profits, and the CVHN Dental Clinic in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida. All services are free to kids enrolled in school in Walton and Okaloosa Counties who are on the free or reduced lunch programs. CVHN has facilitated more than 68,000 free procedures since inception. Over $5 million in free health services has been provided to our community. More info: cvhnkids.org.
