We Go Run (and Walk) for Education

District 33 Parent-Teacher Organizations (PTO's) are racing to the finish line planning We Go Run, a 5K run/walk (3.1 miles), 10K run (6.2 miles), and children's races (1-mile run ages 6 - 12 and 100 yard Kids Dash ages 8 and under). Parents and community members are encouraged to participate.

The race will start and finish at Community High School's Memorial Stadium on Sunday, May 6, 2007, beginning at 8:00 AM. Registration fees for the 5K walk/run and 10K run are $20.00 prior to May 5, and $25.00 on race day. T-Shirts are guaranteed for the first 300 5K/10K participants. The 1-mile run is $8.00 in advance and $10.00 on race day. The Kids Dash, which begins at 9:30 AM, is free but registration is required. The awards ceremony will take place at 9:45 AM.

Race day will take a "family fitness" approach offering a variety of activities. Finish Strong Indoor Sportsplex will provide free baseball, soccer, and lacrosse clinics. Kids activities include a moon jump and outdoor bowling.

Registration forms are available at all eight District 33 schools, as well as online at www.wegoed33.k12.il.us, click "Communications". Registration with a credit card can be done online at www.signmeup.com or www.active.com.
