Event Description: The Fiesta Especial Royalty Run 5K & Parade takes place on Saturday, April 23rd in the beautiful City of Windcrest from 7am - 12pm.  There is a little something for everyone at the Fiesta Especial® Royalty Run 5k & Parade, whether participants choose to compete in the Royalty Run 5K, walk in the 1-mile fun run or ride on a float in the parade.  The route is lined in shade trees with pleasant views as the course wraps around the golf course.  Participants are encouraged to kick back and relax after the run as a parade winds through the city streets featuring a colorful display of the sights and sounds of Fiesta®! The Parade that follows the run is comprised of disability service organizations and those they serve. These organizations are invited to participate at no cost with a float, walking group, cars or carts.

This is one of the few 5K’s in San Antonio where the runners and walkers get personal interaction with the individual’s impacted by their participation on the day of the event.  Runners, walkers and all the floats are lined up in the street together creating a very visible impression of why everyone is there.

Program Description: Fiesta Especial®by RMI is an educational outreach program of Reaching Maximum Independence, Inc.  Fiesta Especial®by RMI is also an official Fiesta® San Antonio experience created for children and adults with physical, cognitive and developmental differences and the family and friends who love them. Fiesta Especial®by RMI creates inclusive and educational experiences engaging individuals with disabilities in the culture, diversity and celebrations of Fiesta® through community instruction and training.  Individuals with disabilities and our community are invited to take part in the Royal Court, 5K & Parade and Celebration day experiences.

Fiesta Especial®by RMI programs are organized and hosted by Reaching Maximum Independence (RMI) in partnership with Texas A&M University - San Antonio, Mi Casa Tamales of Boerne, Fiesta® San Antonio, The Fiesta® Carnival (Wade Shows) and the City of Windcrest.

Proceeds from the Royalty Run 5k support charitable, non-profit programs that improve the lives of children and adults with disabilities in our local community throughout the year.  Proceeds from the event will provide educational outreach, residential services, day program and recreational activities for children and adults with special needs.
