Fun Run and Walk for New Haven Student Activities
Submitted By New Haven Boosters Association
The New Haven Boosters Association (NHBA) and the New Haven Schools Foundation (NHSF), in conjunction with the East Bay Regional Park District, Union City Leisure Services, and the New Haven Unified School District, are proud to present its Annual Race to Save Student Activities Fun Run & Walk. The popular "chip-timed" event (with an electronic sensor attached to runners' shoes) will take place on Saturday, June 8. Runners, walkers, stroller pushers and even dog walkers can look forward to a great race that starts and finishes at Cesar Chavez Middle School in Union City.
Kids races will begin after the conclusion of the 5K and 10K races and are divided into four categories: 400 meters (grades K-4), 800 meters (grades 5-6), 1 mile (grades 7 -12), and a 4 x 400 meters relay race. All courses are run around the school track and the Alameda Creek Trail.
Fun Run participants will receive t-shirts, ribbons, and goody bags filled with items donated by local companies. Other event activities include medals for the top three finalists in each category, Fastest Feet Perpetual Trophy to the top Kids Relay Team, special prizes for elementary school sites, and booths hosted by event sponsors and various non-profit organizations throughout the school district.
Advance online registration is available through www.active.com. Type in "Race to Save Student Activities" in the search box. Registrations received after June 4 will be processed at the event on race day.
The Fun Run is a NHBA fundraising effort to help the Foundation meet its $100,000 pledge to support New Haven Co-Curricular Programs. NHBA is donating an additional $250 to $350 to each New Haven elementary school, depending on student participation.
