Grin & Bear It Walk/Run for Healthy Beginnings
The 9th Annual Grin & Bear It Run is going to be the biggest one
yet! We are expecting 1,000 participants this year. All proceeds from
this event will support the program’s 12-point kid inspections.
USATF certified 5k & 10k courses start and end at the Les Schwab
Amphitheater and wind through the neighborhoods surrounding the
Deschutes River and Columbia Park. The 10k is a double loop of the 5k
route. The 1 mile Family Fun Run treks through the Old Mill District on
paved, flat terrain.

Since 1994, Non-profit Healthy Beginnings has provided free early childhood health and development screenings for Deschutes County children aged from birth through five years. The program's goal is to provide accessible, educational, preventative screenings to ALL children. Young children are welcome whether or not they have insurance coverage and there are no income requirements.
