To help promote the health and well being of our students, families, staff and the entire community, the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation is once again hosting its very own 5K Run and Walk, scheduled for Saturday, May 4, at 9 a.m. at North High School’s Bundrant Stadium.
The event will include a 5K Run & Walk around North High School, a 1 mile walk, as well as a Kids’ Dash for children 5 and under. The event serves as a fundraiser for EVSC schools. Proceeds are divided among each EVSC school and will be used for physical education equipment. The district with the highest percentage of participants will get a larger portion of the proceeds.
“This is a great way to show our commitment and support for healthy lifestyles of not only our students and staff, but for the entire community,” said EVSC Superintendent David Smith. “We ask the community to join us at this family-fun event and support our schools while doing something for themselves and setting a great example for their families.”
Registration for the event is now open. Cost for participants who register on or before April 7 is $20 for adults and $8 for students. Participants who register after April 7 will pay $25 for adults and $10 for students. Cost includes a t-shirt while supplies last. The Kids’ Dash is open to children 5 years of age and under and is free and includes a free t-shirt.
