DATE: Saturday, October 29, 2016
TIME:  Kids Fun Run/Walk @ 8:30 AM, 5k Run/Walk @ 9:00 AM

Proceeds from the race will benefit Family Services, Inc. and the Montgomery Village Rotary Club Foundation.* The Challenge Yourself 5k event is held on a FUN yet challenging course that will take you along the ghostly trails of Watkins Mill Road. The Fun Run is a spooky mini trail for all ages. Parents are invited to push their little gremlins along the course in strollers (please no scooters or skateboards). Costumes are encouraged, but not required.

Immediately following the race, runners and spectators alike are invited to partake in a special “I Survived the Halloween Hustle” awards ceremony and festivities. This includes trick-or-treating at all vendor tables, a moon bounce, music, and much more. Stay tuned for more hair raising details about the race...IF YOU DARE!

The event will be held rain or shine, and entry fees are non-refundable.

The Montgomery Village Rotary Club has been actively assisting the community since 1982. If you are not familiar with Rotary, it is an organization that not only promotes “Service Above Self” but implements it, as well. The Montgomery Village Rotary has multiple ongoing projects and programs. The Club has a special focus on programs that promote the welfare of children and students. We also actively assist organizations that support individuals and families in need. Part of an international campaign, we are involved in Polio Plus, eradicating polio world-wide and have recently been the force behind the Basra project, providing prosthetics to amputees in war torn Iraq. The Club’s membership consists of a wide variety of professionals. The most important attribute that our members possess is a willingness to donate a small amount of time to make better, the lives of those less fortunate.


Family Services strives for excellence in all that we do. Here are some of the organizations which recognize our effort:
