Highland Parks And Recreation To Hold Summer Solstice Fun Run

The Highland Parks and Recreation Department, in partnership with the Angel Fund, will kick off this summer with a Summer Solstice Fun Run on Saturday, June 21—the longest day of the year.

“It’s really just a fun run to encourage people to, obviously, celebrate the beginning of summer, but hopefully to bring some families together at Silver Lake Park at 7 o’ clock on June 21 to either run, jog, walk,” Mark Rosen, director of Parks and Recreation, told us. “It’s more about socializing and just getting to know our neighbors and create friendships, things like that.

“It’s $5 to enter. If people want a shirt, it’s $10. We’ve also added a little extra this year—we’re going to have people from the Angel Fund that will collect donations or items for needy families.”

The 2.5 mile cross-country run begins at 7:00 p.m. in Silver Lake Park. Rosen said snacks and drinks will also be available for purchase. For more information, call 651-1386.
