Cele Stampede Community 5k Run
We have a 5k run at our campus. We invite anyone and everyone from the community. We charge $5 and participants receive a t-shirt, meal and freebies from various health vendors that come and set up. We work with local businesses (dentist offices, chiropractors, fitness centers, etc.) that come and set up booths and distribute information pieces for the participants. It's a great, cheap way to get the community out and our students bring their families and friends.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Our participation numbers grow each year for the event and we continue to add more ways to get the students and community involved. We now have community sponsors that have agreed to support the event for the next year and use a few of our faster students from each grade level to be "rabbits" for the run.
