Community members can now register for the 4th annual Alport Syndrome 5K for Healthy Kidneys, a family-friendly 5K run/walk scheduled for Sunday, April 3 at the Kiwanis Community Park in Tempe. The event raises funds for the Alport Syndrome Foundation , a volunteer-led, non-profit organization that provides education, support and hope for families affected by this genetic kidney disease.

Early registration for the 5K is $25 for adults and $15 for children 13 and under. Beginning March 20, registration fees increase to $30 for adults and $20 for children. Online registration is available at www.active.com. Participants will receive a commemorative T-shirt (guaranteed for first 250 registrants), a chance to win door prizes, post-race refreshments and entertainment. Prizes will also be given for top racers and fundraisers. Race-day registration begins at 7 a.m., and the race will begin at 8 a.m., rain or shine. For more information on the Foundation and Alport Syndrome, please visit www.alportsyndrome.org.
