Roberds Run 4 Your Life 5k & the Walk to Remember is an annual fundraiser that benefits local nonprofit P.E.A.R.L. Ben Roberds Scholarship fund was created to honor Ben’s work that was cut short by his battle with cancer on April 24, 2019, at the age of 37. The scholarship, awarded annually, creates opportunities for successful Benton County Treatment Court participants to further their education through an accredited 2 or 4-year college or a vocational school. 

5k Participants will receive a unique one of a kind finisher medal and awards will be given to the top finishers!  $5 off race given to all participants prior to September 1, 2024. Sign up today to walk for a cause or run for a purpose!

Race Day: 
The 5k and the Walk to Remember will be held at 2300 South Dixieland Road in Rogers, AR on Saturday October 19, 2024 or the race can be run virtually in the month of October. The race will be held rain or shine but severe weather could force us to pivot to a virtual race. 

The 5K and the Walk to Remember benefits P.E.A.R.L. Featuring a flat course along the Blossom Way Trail, this is a comfortable and enjoyable race. The 5K race begins at 7:30 AM and then the Walk to Remember begins approximately 9 AM.

A Walk to Remember is a tribute from family & friends for those that have been lost to substance use disorder. We encourage participants to bring a picture of their family member to the event. Listen to the race announcement / community event that our friends at KUAF featured on their community spotlight. Our race directors also went on the local Good Day NWA show to discuss the race in 2021. Check it out here
