ANTIGO - It can be difficult to give kids an inexpensive way to have fun during the summer. The Boy and Girls Club of Langlade County will host a 5K run tomorrow to help the club give kids something to do this summer. The money from the Be Great 5K helps the club buy new supplies for different activities.


"We do cooking with the kids so that money will be used to buy the supplies for the cooking. It helps keep our sports equipment new. It help keep our building up. There's a lot of wear and tear with that many kids in here everyday," said Angel Zimmerman, the executive director of the Boys and Girls Club of Langlade County.

The Boys and Girls Club depends on money from fundraisers because they want to keep their membership cost low.

"We only charge twenty dollars for a normal membership for one kid for a year. It costs 750 dollars for us to serve that one child meaning staff wages, keeping the lights on, building upkeep, program services," said Zimmerman.

The run will start tomorrow at 9 in the morning. You can register for the run at the Boys and Girls Club Antigo building.
