5k Charity Walk/Run
Join Modern Woodmen for the first ever charity walk/run at Modern Woodmen's National Convention. Lace up your athletic shoes and choose between a one-mile or 5K route through Indianapolis' scenic White River State Park.

The Jared Foundation is an organization dedicated to providing education and resources that address childhood obesity.

Be sure to stop by the race table at registration in Griffin Exhibit Hall on Saturday or Sunday to pick up your race packet, t-shirt and bib number.
Choose between a one-mile or 5K route.
The route starts off in the heart of beautiful White River State Park. Runners and walkers then cross a pedestrian bridge over the White River toward the Indianapolis Zoo. One-mile route participants will turn around and head back over the bridge. Participants in the 5K will continue on The Promenade along the river before crossing back over. They'll proceed alongside Indianapolis' unique canals, near the NCAA Hall of Champions and the Indiana State Museum before heading back to the finish line.
