Buck and Angela Showalter to host Kids Peace Trick-Or-Trot 5k Run/1m Walk on October 27


Orioles Manager BUCK SHOWALTER and his wife ANGELA have teamed up with KidsPeace to host the third annual KidsPeace Trick-or-Trot 5K run/1M walk this Saturday, October 27 in Canton. This family event is open to all ages and features Halloween activities in addition to the race.

The entry fee for individuals participating in the run is $35, which includes an Under Armour t-shirt for the first 400 registered runners. Families who plan to walk the one mile together will pay just $20 and are encouraged to dress in their favorite Halloween costumes. Pets are also invited and are welcome to dress for Halloween as well. Foster families and children walk at no charge.

Race day registration begins at 7:30 a.m., and the race will begin at 9:00 a.m. The course goes through the Canton and Patterson Park neighborhoods, beginning and ending at O’Donnell Square in Canton.

The top three registered teams who raise the most money will be eligible to win gift certificates, a complimentary wine tasting, 2013 Orioles tickets and more. In addition, there will be prizes for top runners, age group winners and most creative Halloween costumes for adults, children and pets.

After the completion of the race, participants can join the Showalters and the Oriole Bird for light fare and Halloween fun in O’Donnell Square.

In addition to race day, on Friday, October 26 from 5:00- 8:00 p.m. there will be a Pre-Race Party at O’Donnell Square. Participants may pick up their race packets, listen to live music, enjoy a discounted dinner at one of the race sponsors’ restaurants and browse the shops on the square.

The Showalters are enthusiastic supporters of KidsPeace, a private charity dedicated to serving the behavioral and mental health needs of children, families and communities. All proceeds from this event benefit KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs of Maryland.
