“We are excited and honored to announce that we have partnered with CARE Center as the 2022 Redbud Classic beneficiary,” Redbud Classic Race Director Kristin Hersom said. “We look forward to providing race participants with the opportunity to support CARE Center’s vision of ending child abuse by providing child abuse prevention education training and resources to the community.”
Proceeds raised from Redbud Classic’s race weekend will further CARE Center’s mission to provide opportunities for healing and hope for children in Oklahoma County.
“Redbud has raised more than $900,000 for local nonprofits in Oklahoma since our first race in 1983,” Hersom said. “We strive to keep serving our mission of providing the community with a tradition of fun, fitness and philanthropy year after year.”
The Redbud Classic features 10- and 30-Mile Bike Tours, a 50-Mile Fondo, timed 5K and 10K runs, a 1-Mile Kids’ Fun Run, a 2-Mile Walk, a Baby Stroller Derby and for the first time in race history, a 1-Mile Woof Walk. The race promotes healthy living for Oklahoma families and improves the quality of life for the community. Registration for all events are now open on Redbud Classic’s website.
