Race for the Future for Highland Park
- Erin Fenley, Highland Park Elementary School
- Community Involvement
Race for the Future is a 5K run/walk held Oct. 10, which is a community event that includes many area schools to raise money to benefit the Lee’s Summit Educational Foundation and the Carrie Foresee Memorial Scholarship Fund. Highland Park was one of the top five schools with the most runners. Students had a run club to prepare for the 5K, which met two days after school. Kids are thrilled to take an active role with this, and FUTP 60 adds fun to get credit for leading stretches and runs.
