An Event to Benefit Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech

We’re All In This Together: The Wait Is On For Ice Cream!

The health and safety of all of you who support the Kilwins Ice Cream Run, benefiting Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech, is our primary consideration.

Because this is such an uncertain time, we have made the difficult decision to defer our race with the hope that we can be safely together again. We are already making the plans!

Clarke’s dedication to teaching children who are deaf or hard of hearing to listen and talk goes on! While we are all adjusting to this new reality, we want you to know that Clarke students continue their education through virtual classrooms and receive individual, daily speech sessions with Clarke’s amazing team of teachers and speech-language pathologists. Clarke students cannot afford to be put on hold.

We thank you for your understanding and ask that your registration fees become a donation to support the ongoing mission of Clarke Schools for Hearing and Speech. We are also offering the options to roll over your registration to the future Kilwins Ice Cream Run or a full refund. Deadline to receive a refund is Monday, April 20, 2020. To make your selection visit, select “Contact,” complete the form and note your preference in the “Your Message” section.


The Kilwins Ice Cream Run raises awareness and support for children who are deaf or hard of hearing who learn to listen and talk. This fun-filled, family event offers a timed 5K or 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk with all-you-can-eat Kilwins Original Recipe Ice Cream at the finish line!

Event features to look forward to

  • A timed 5K or a 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk at the St Johns Town Center in Jacksonville, Florida 
  • All-you-can-eat Kilwins Original Recipe Ice Cream at the finish line
  • Prior to the 5K, the famous 100 yard Kiddie Dash for children 3-10 years old will take place
  • A lively sponsor and vendor activity area
  • Souvenir medal for all 5K participants who cross the finish line
  • Guaranteed performance t-shirt for all participants registered before March 9
  • The overall Men's 5K winner and overall Women's 5K winner will each receive one year of FREE Kilwins Original Recipe Ice Cream courtesy of Kilwins Jacksonville

NOTE: All persons (including children) who participate in the 5K or 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk will need to be a registered participant. The only exception would be an infant or toddler (3 years or younger) that remains in a stroller for the duration of the 5K or 1-Mile Fun Run/Walk.
