About the Empire 5K for Kids
Empire 5K for kids is an exciting family event, you won’t want to miss. Organized by Central Ohio’s elite All-Star program, Empire Cheer and Dance. At Empire, our coaches and staff strive on developing exceptional athletes as well as well-rounded students. We educate our families on the importance of healthy living inside & out of the gym. Our Empire 5k is a great opportunity to take time with our community & families, to thank them for their support and have fun together.
With over 150 local athletes ranging in age from 4-18, Empire Cheer and Dance provides teams and classes at every level. Our programs teach tumbling, stunting, & dancing. We showcase these talents all over Ohio and many of our elite teams travel out of state to compete. For more information about our programs, please visit our website at www.empirecheerandance.com.
This year, Empire Cheer and Dance has teamed up with Kids ‘N Kamp (http://kidsnkamp.org/) for our third annual Empire 5K for kids! Proceeds from our race will go to Kids ‘N Kamp. Kids ‘N Kamp offers a range of programs and services free of charge to children, teens and young adults throughout Ohio who are undergoing chemotherapy and/or radiation treatments for their disease. Group members also include children in remission from cancer who offer hope and encouragement to newly diagnosed children. We are so proud to be able to work with them and support them in their incredible outreach.
