USD 490 schools partnered with Oz Events to participate in the El Dorado Half-Marathon, 5K, and 1 mile walk/run event on April 1.
For every pre-registered runner, the PE department will receive $1. All USD 490 staff members and students will receive a discount on the cost of participating in the event.
Everyone who completes the run will receive a finisher's medal and t-shirt. Elementary students that participate should wear their school t-shirts to show school pride.
"I hope that the students and families find some excitement in doing the event and being active together, whether they are participating in one of the running/walking events or by volunteering," Tiffany Lippolt, PE Teacher at Skelly, said. "I think it's important for students to see their family being active, or at least getting support in being active from their family."
If you would like more information on volunteering, or need the student/staff discount codes, please contact Tiffany Lippoldt at email@example.com
. The discount codes expire on March 30, so be sure to pre-register!
