The Cantina Kids Fun Run is held each year on the first Sunday in June. It’s the only run in Saratoga that’s designed especially for kids! Kids choose the ¼ Mile or 1 Mile course, all kids receive a medal, and the top three boys and top three girls on each course receive trophies. Before and after the run, families can enjoy face painting, a challenge course, healthy snacks, and more. Best of all, by participating you’re raising money for children’s healthcare at Saratoga Hospital. A run for kids, all about kids, that benefits kids…a great family event right in downtown Saratoga Springs!

Founded in 2008 by Cantina owners Jeff and Heath Ames, the Cantina Kids Fun Run has raised over $560,000 for pediatric care at Saratoga Hospital’s Emergency Department. The Ames family has a very personal connection to the cause: their daughter, Tessa, now 18, was born with a rare and extremely hard to control form of epilepsy. Knowing that quality pediatric emergency care is important to all parents, whether for a broken arm, stitches, or something more serious, Jeff and Heath created the event as a way to give back to the community.
