Join us for the fourth annual Bears Who Care OktoBEARfest Fun Run & Festival  - it's a healthy, family-friendly event that will be more BEARRIFIC than ever! Celebrate your German spirit as you run, walk or jog on Sunday, October 24, 2021 - in person or virtually.  Choose from a 5K for adults or a 1K for children – it’s perfect for the whole family! And when you participate you're giving back to children within the Winter Garden and Greater Orlando community.

For those participating in person, enjoy a morning of fun activities, including live entertainment, interactive sponsor booths, food, raffles, plus a scavenger hunt and major prize giveaways. 

Runners and walkers are all welcome to participate! 


Challenge yourself to complete a goal or get a group together (register for 5 at a special rate).  You decide how you want to join the fun!
