JENISON, Mich.— Runners will be in for a cool reward this weekend as Slip-n-Slide 5K Run returns to Rosewood Park.

The race starts at 8:15 a.m. Saturday.  At noon, participants can ditch their sneakers and throw on a swimsuit as four 150-foot-long plastic water slides lining the Soccer Bowl open to visitors.  Admission is $1 and includes additional activities for all ages.

Registration for the 5K will be open Saturday from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m.  The slides will be open until 5 p.m. Shuttle buses will be taking families from Fair Haven Ministries to the park throughout the day.  Participants can also enjoy food, bounce houses, dunk tanks, face painting and other activities at Rosewood Park.  For additional information, visit the event website here or contact Lori Hoorn at (616) 662-9664.

The event is sponsored by City2Shore Real Estate.  Proceeds from the event will go to Kids Hope USA, which pairs elementary and middle school children with mentors.
