5K Back to School Fun Run

We held a 5K Back to School Fun Run that involved our students, their families, and our community. We got sponsors, made up t-shirts and picked a location at one of the forest preserves. We gave out medals for first, second, and third place winners in four categories (kids 12 and under, kids 13-17, men, women).

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students helped in the beginning of the race with set-up and check-in.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

It rained the night before and washed away our trail markers for the 5K. We had to quickly re-route everyone to avoid major mud pits.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goals by not only having more race participants than expected, but we raised the money needed to buy two portable basketball systems.
