Join us for the second annual IndePENNdence 5K in conjunction with Richfield’s Open Streets at Penn Fest! The IndePENNdence 5K will kick off Penn Fest with a flat and fast, USATF-certified run down the middle of Penn Avenue while hundreds of vendors and spectators cheer the runners on. After the race, participants will have the chance to explore the various vendor tents, craft stalls, and food trucks at Penn Fest.
The event benefits Minnesota Independence College and Community (MICC), a life skills program for young adults with autism spectrum disorders and other learning differences. MICC partners with individuals to create vibrant lives within the Richfield community through experiential learning in the apartment setting, work sites, and local transportation system.
One of MICC’s priorities is to provide participants with education and opportunities for a healthy lifestyle. The IndePENNdence 5K is a perfect chance for MICC’s participants and the Richfield community to join together in exercise that is fun, unique, and accepting of each person’s ability. We hope you will join us! #IndePENNdence5K
