Race Day Events:
The Kids Fun Run kicks off behind the school at 9:30am. Thank you to our good friends at the Valley Shore YMCA for organizing and running this fun event! It's a great way to get the whole family involved!
The 5K Run/Walk starts in our front bus circle at 10am.
We will have kids activities, including kindness rocks, pretzel necklaces, sidewalk chalk, and more setup in front of the school to keep the kids (and young at heart) entertained throughout the morning.
Bring a little extra cash to grab a quick burst of energy from our bake sale or enter our raffle for a chance to win some great prizes donated by our sponsors!
Our awards ceremony will take place near the school entrance shortly following the 5K. Please stick around to cheer on our star runners! We will be drawing our raffle winners at this time, as well.
