The North Star Children's Ramble

Sunday April 24, 2016
Join The Blue Bunny and the Dedham Youth Commission for the Annual North Star Ramble Children's Race and the Dedham Family Fun Run!

The North Star Children's Ramble is a one-of-a-kind literacy-themed sporting event for kids ages 4-12 and their families. There are age-specific races ranging from the 50 yard dash to 500 yard dash, and The Dedham Family Fun Run. Like its "parent race," James Joyce Ramble, the North Star Ramble creatively mixes sports and the arts together by tying into Dedham author Peter H. Reynolds’ book, The North Star. Pre-race activities include an Athletic Warmup, Music, Face Painting, Games and a Coloring Table.

Every registered runner receives a Goodie Bag*, complete with a book from Charlesbridge Publishing, Harper Collins, Abrams, or Candlewick Press, along with many items from local businesses and youth organizations! Sponsored by the Dedham Youth Commission and The Blue Bunny as part of the Annual 10K James Joyce Ramble.
