Bellingham KIDS Traverse announces scholarships

Recreation Northwest announced that scholarships are available for entries to the Bellingham KIDS Traverse, thanks to the generosity of the Bellingham Fairhaven Lions Club.

The KIDS Traverse takes place on Sunday, June 28, at Civic Stadium in Bellingham.

Scholarships will be awarded to kids who need financial assistance to participate, who qualify for the free or low-cost school lunch program, and on a first-come, first-served basis as funds are available. Applications can be submitted online at

All kids 6-12 are invited to form solo (Chinook) tandem (Coho) or relay (Chum) teams for the race, which includes four events:

▪ A one-mile run through Salmon Woods

▪ A 1.5-mile mountain bike around Civic and Geri fields

▪ A half-mile obstacle course inside Civic Stadium

▪ A quarter-mile team trek to the Mallard Ice Cream Finish Line
