This is our 8th annual Run For #271 event. It will be held in the beautiful McEuen Park on June 1, 2019. What is Run For #271? It is a fun, family friendly event for our community that raises money for our 11 local elementary schools. 100% of the proceeds from this event go directly toward things like: K-3 classroom libraries, crisis counseling, PE programs, art programs, Math is Cool, Cross Country and more. Each school principal determines where the funds will go for their school.
Run For #271 has a kids obstacle course race (2-12 year old), obstacle course special needs wave (all ages), 5K (all ages), 1 mile fun run (all ages), huge raffle, face painting, bounce houses, food trucks, vendor booths, music, arts and crafts, and more.
Last year we raised nearly $38,000 for our eleven School District #271 elementary schools. This is a family friendly event that is only possible with the help of our teachers, principals, school administrators, parents, local businesses, sponsors, volunteers, participants, and YOU!!!!
If you have any questions or ideas, please feel free to contact me. Please check out our Facebook page and register for our event today! Can't wait to see you there.
