On March 21, The Preserve will host the first annual Leprechaun Leap benefitting Easter Seals of Birmingham.
The event will include a 5K run or walk, a kid zone sponsored by Covenant Classical Schools with face painting, balloon animal artist, glitter tattoos, moonwalks, rock climbing wall and more.
Though Easter Seals has helped organize a walk each year, this is the first year that the organization has stepped away from a national walk to create one locally. One hundred percent of the proceeds will stay local and directly benefit Easter Seals’ pediatric clinic in Pelham.
“I think it is vital for our community to know that whether they come out and participate, volunteer, etc., that all the proceed directly benefit our local community and those with special needs,” Director of Development and Marketing Allison Nichols said.
Live music will be provided by local bands Rockstar and Rollin in the Hay. Local artists will have their work on display for an arts and crafts festival. Several food trucks and Frio Pops will be on hand for refreshments.
Registration for the 5K will be $30 and will include a long sleeve T-shirt. Post event festivities are free and open to the public.
