Why We Run
Run Around The Square is an annual charity event that raises money to maintain, promote and advance the betterment of the Regent Square community. We run to support our community. The charities supported have included – but are not limited to – the Wilkins School Community Center, the Frick Environmental Center, and the Regent Square Civic Association.
The Wilkins School Community Center
The Wilkins School Community Center hosts a full slate of affordable classes, programs and events for people of all ages. All are welcome here! The community center has made important building improvements and planned critical accessibility work for the 96-year-old structure thanks to the generosity of Run Around the Square.
Your neighbors thank you, Run Around the Square runners!
The Frick Environmental Center
I would like to thank the Run Around the Square Board for being so supportive of Frick Environmental Center and our programs through these many years. Your support helps us to continue developing, implementing, growing and strengthening our reach into the community. I think we all believe in the power of parks for our personal and collective health and well-being. Our hope is that parks are accessible and welcoming to all, whether you run, hike, bird, explore, meditate, volunteer, come for peace, or come for camaraderie. Thank you for being a constant partner in this vision and mission.

The Regent Square Civic Association
The Run Around the Square is a beloved community event – and its impact goes far beyond the day of the race! Contributions from Run Around the Square have enabled the Regent Square Civic Association to maintain and enhance a variety of initiatives, such as the holiday lights, Second Saturday events, and the annual yard sale. We are incredibly grateful for the efforts and support of the Run Around the Square team!
