Sophie and Madigan's Playground is thrilled to be an official charity partner at the 2015 Frederick Running Festival and we are looking for runners, walkers, and supporters to join our Running for Sophie and Madigan team.

As a Running for Sophie and Madigan team member, not only will you be running for the memory of Sophie and Madigan, but you will be helping fundraise for a themed memorial playground that will provide our community a place for children and their families to create lifelong memories.
