Kids II® invites children ages 5 to 18 to enter a t-shirt design for the 2013 Kids II Strong Legs Run. The winner of the contest will have his or her artwork featured on the official event t-shirt. The winning artist will also be invited to autograph their design and will receive several shirts as thanks.
“We are drawing on the creativity of children to inspire excitement for the run. Children are the inspiration behind Kids II and for nearly everything the company does,” said Tara King, the Director of Corporate Communications at Kids II.
Entrants must simply email their artwork to Renee Fraley at renee.fraley(at)choa(dot)org. All entries must be received by Monday, September 23, 2013.
The 29th Annual Kids II Strong Legs Run will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at Turner Field. All proceeds from this family-friendly event benefit the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
Registration is now open for the run. The event includes a 10K and 5K qualifier for the 2014 AJC Peachtree Road Race, 5K, 2K Fun Run and Stroller Roll and Mascot Trot for children ages 10 and under.
“Kids II is the next generation leader of ideas and products for children because we take the wishes of both parents and children and we make them real,” said King. “One child is going to be thrilled to see thousands of people participating in the run wearing his or her design.”
