This 1 mile  run for kids (ages 13 and under) will take place at Smucker Park.   Featuring fun color, water, and bubble stations to run through, as well as other kids activities throughout the park for families to enjoy.  

Children will start the race in waves according to age. Registration and check in will begin at 8 am and the first age group will take off at 8:45 am (then every 10 minutes after that). Children are encouraged to run by themselves.  The 3-5 year age group will have the option of finishing at the .5 mile mark or continuing on for the full mile.  

Parents are welcome to run/walk around the center grassy area to keep an eye on their children and there will be a number of volunteers along the course to help kids along the way.  There is a $5 charge for parents running with their child. If you are running with a child you must have a race bib/bracelet to be on the course (this is for the safety of all the children running).

Each kid runner will be getting a runner's goodie bag.  To guarantee your little runner gets their goodie bag, it is recommended that you pre-register online before the day of the event.  Extra bags will be brought the day of the event but supplies will be limited.

Some wine needs to aerate.  Crowded messages need white-space... and most marketers could use a drink. Drink x Design (Drink by Design) is about getting your ideas out of the office and into the conversation; cracking open a cold one and tapping into your creativity.

Drink x Design is a business educational event aimed at popping the cork on marketing and design for your business.  Come and engage in a marketing conversation with Addy Award winning marketers Jon M. Perry, Sidney Flint, Mark Torres, Sujey Aguilar, and the rest of the crew from Imaginary Friends Design Studios and Print Zoom.  If you have any questions about marketing and design you can bet that they will have an answer!  

To meet the team, come to Yuma's Main Squeeze the first Tuesday of every month.

If you have a specific group of questions and would like to schedule 1-on-1 time with an expert, RSVP now at rsvp@drinkxdesign.com!

Schneider, a hitman, gets a call from Mertens on the morning of his birthday. He has a last-minute assignment for Schneider who refuses the request because it is his birthday. Mertens insists that it is an important matter. When they meet in Mertens’ office, Schneider is told that the target is Ramon Bax, a writer.  He lives alone in a secluded place.  “It’s an easy job. With a little luck you’re back home before noon.”  Schneider accepts the assignment. What was promised to be a simple hit turns out to be more than expected.
