The Big Chill 5K Run/Walk, an annual charitable event, collects toys for the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and other local charities. There is no fee; instead, participants are asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy for a child between the ages of 3 and 14. Suggestions include dolls, books, sports equipment, games, and building blocks. The event is open to the public.
