September Scramble

The fun is back!!!! Due to the extremely popular event – it is back, bigger and muddier than ever. Coldwell Banker Premier Real Estate proudly partners with San Luis Obispo Parks and Recreation Department to sponsor the Third Annual September Scramble Kids Adventure Course on Saturday, September 29th from 1:00-4:00pm at the Laguna Lake Golf Course. 
The Scramble is designed for school age kids 5-6, 7-9, and 10-13.

Thirteen+ obstacles built over a 0.75-mile path throughout the golf course will challenge the kids’ imaginations and abilities, including a climbing wall, hay bale hurdles, tunnels, net climbs, and balance beams.  

Parents can run the course with their child (with registration) after the child has completed the first lap solo.

September is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month and Coldwell Banker is dedicated to healthy families, happy homes, and strong communities.  The September Scramble was developed by the City of San Luis Obispo Parks and Recreation Department as a way to help prevent childhood obesity, promote healthy eating and physical activity, and increase awareness of childhood obesity among individuals of all ages and walks of life. The cost is $5.00 per kid with a max of $20.00 per family (maximum 5 per family unless prior approval).  Each participant will receive an awesome t-shirt to celebrate their adventurous day!

Ages 5-6 | 1:00pm | $10.00
Ages 7-9 | 2:00pm | $10.00
Ages 10-13 | 3:00pm | $10.00
