Historic Riverfront 5K raises money for Dickman Park programming

Body: 

Now in its 11th year, the Historic Riverfront 5K has raised tens of thousands of dollars to support programming for kids and families at Dickman Park.

The money helps pay for neighborhood kids to take field trips to Twins games, the Mill City Museum and The Minneapolis Institute of Arts, as well as nighttime family events like puppet shows and music and movies in the park.

The fundraiser keeps the park active and attractive for the scores of young families moving into the neighborhood despite Park Board budget cuts.
