The YMCA of the Treasure Valley is hosting its annual YMCA Harrison Classic Kids Run Presented by Idaho Central Credit Union on Sunday.

The event is scheduled for 3 p.m. on historic Harrison Boulevard in Boise.

This is the third year that race organizers are partnering with IncludeAbility Inc., a Boise-based charity that promotes the inclusion of children with physical and intellectual disabilities into mainstream events.

“We’re delighted that one of the largest kids’ runs in the Treasure Valley offers a course that is friendly to all abilities,” Trace Dandrea, volunteer president of IncludeAbility Inc., said in a news release. “We hope to have as many as 30 kids with disabilities competing alongside able-bodied kids which sends an important message of the importance of inclusion.”

The event offers a 1-mile course for children of all abilities who are 13 and under. The course has been IncludeAbility-certified for wheelchairs.
