Our Many Fun Events!
Alegria's Kickin' for Kids is active all year-round with many events. Our primary focus is to raise enough money to enable us to purchase and to give out more new shoes each consecutive year.
Alegria members have volunteered on behalf of Alegria's Kickin' for Kids at the internationally known Gasparilla Distance Classic since 2012! They will be returning this year for the 5th time to pose as pirates with the runners at the finish line for memorable photo ops. They will also be serving beer at the post race "parties" following each day of racing at Cotanchobee Park. Races this year are on Saturday, February 25 and Sunday, February 26, 2017.
Saturday, February 18, 2017, the week prior the adult races, a children's "Publix Too Good For Drugs Jr. Gasparilla Distance Classic" race will be held. Alegria will be present with a tent to entertain the children with pirate photos and fun handouts. Location to be announced at a later date.
The Gasparilla Distance Classic Assoication contributes substantially to Alegria's Kickin' for Kids. Thank you GDCA!!!
We hope to see you at these fantastic events!
