The Run is 16 days away! If you haven’t registered, there is still time. The payouts to our school are massive this year, so take a moment to register as a runner, volunteer or virtual runner so our school
will get credit.
Let’s also have some fun on October 16th. You can have a taste of pie on the course, run or walk with your friends, get a T-shirt and there is a Pancake Breakfast After Party. The pancake breakfast will be at the new sports basement location at 1041 Market Place from 10:30am-12:30pm.
The Run for Education is a great way to give back and be involved. I hope to see you out there!
