All Ages 5K Race & Family Day March 24th, 2024 930am-1pm

Previously named the Shamrock Shuffle, the Shamrock 5K & Family Day is the Cheshire Children's Museum’s largest event and fundraiser of the year.

The event includes a family-friendly 5k road race, activities, games, food, “golden boxes,” shamrock shuffle dance, community booths, face painting, and more!  It's a day to celebrate with families in our region and raise money for a wonderful organization!

Thanks to the generosity of our sponsors, last year's fundraiser generated over $28,000. These funds helped expand daily programming, exhibited enhancements, and ensured the museum was accessible to all community members wishing to visit.  We are reaching out today to invite your business to become a sponsor of this wonderful family event and help us reach our goal of raising $50,000. All proceeds will be used to purchase exhibit and program materials and expand our community outreach opportunities. 

The Cheshire Children's Museum has been a welcoming, inclusive place for over 285,000 visitors from the Monadnock Region and beyond in the past 11 years. Our goal is to provide a safe and stimulating environment where children and their caretakers can play, learn, explore with curiosity, and imagine that anything is possible. Because we are a 501(c)3, we can only make the Cheshire Children's Museum possible with our community's help. Your sponsorship will directly impact children and families in the Monadnock Region. As a sponsor, you will receive generous benefits based on your chosen sponsorship level.

Thank you for supporting the children and families of Cheshire County, Monadnock Region, and beyond.
