Klompen Classic 5K

 5K Run/Walk

This is no “tiptoe” through the tulips

Wednesday, April 30, 2014 Pella, IA

 

The Klompen Classic 5K Run/Walk is a family friendly event you won’t want to miss! The run begins and ends on Pella’s quaint town square with the 5K race route winding its way through the Dutch community showcasing windmills, hundreds of varieties of tulips and Dutch food vendors.

All proceeds support local families with what they stand in need of…employment & financial help, free counseling, parenting & internet safety classes, substance abuse help and much more.
