Bring Your Own (Water) Bottle. We will have water for you to refill your water bottles. This is part of our efforts to provide a sustainable event and demonstrate smart behavior for our kids. We have great drinking water that we work to protect- let’s enjoy it.
The safety of your children is our priority. We will have the support of Medical Reserve Corps on site in case of injury.
Parents on the Course
If you’d like to see your kids in action, you may position yourself on the course to get that great action shot or cheer your kids on. You are not allowed to do the course with your kids. This is for them to accomplish on their own.
A percentage of the proceeds for the Bellingham Kids Traverse will go to Whatcom Family YMCA.
