Everyone is invited to join us on Saturday May 2nd at 9am for the most anticipated Spring event! It's a time where we come together as a school community to raise money for the American Cancer Society, while we remember and honor our friends and family who have/had cancer. If you have not already registered, there is still time. The cost is $12 a person and includes a 2015 race shirt and goody bag. (But hurry as the shirt sizes are running low and will sell out by race day!) All participants on race day are also entered into our "raffle prize give away"! It is a morning you do not want to miss! For registration questions please contact Kelly Nielsen at email@example.com
If walking or running isn't "your thing" please consider volunteering. We need people out on the course, cheering and keeping participants safe. If you are interested in volunteering please contact Courtney Henderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
