2020 Fall Family Fun Run/Walk 5k
Welcome Glen School families to our Fall Family Fun Run/Walk 5k!
Glen School RED HSA hosts a myriad of activities for students and teachers throughout the school year, all of which are made possible by your generous support. Our Fall Family Fun Run/Walk 5k will open on Saturday, October 10 and close one week later on October 17. Choose any day during this window to complete your 5k at any location of your choosing, from a loop around your neighborhood, to an out-and-back at the park, to your treadmill, and be sure to track your time and distance! (Strava, Runkeeper, Map My Run apps, for example.) Please continue to be mindful of social distancing as you participate in this virtual Glen School community event.
Students accumulate their 5k distance at home with their families using the special form provided by Glen School physical education teachers and physical therapist. Once the 5k distance is tallied, the form will be returned to school in return for a well earned certificate of completion. Non-student participants who walk or run the 5k should email firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 PM on October 17 with their name and final time in minutes and seconds. Final results will post on Sunday, October 18.
**Be sure to submit via email a family or student photo to be included in a special school slideshow.**
A portion of this event's fundraised dollars will be gifted to a nearby special education preschool in need of outside financial assistance to meet their students' needs during this especially difficult time.
How do I register?
To register, visit https://glenschool5k.eventbrite.com. Students and staff register for free as we take part in Child Health Month.
Why is there a registration cost for non-students?
The Fall Family Fun Run/Walk 5k is at its heart a celebration of our students and all that they will accomplish as they learn and develop. To help foster that development, the Glen School RED HSA funds many of the fun and exciting activities our preschoolers will experience, but not without your help.
What is included in my registration?
Please include your email address upon registering so that we can send you a bib to print out at home. Students receive a certificate of completion once their sheets are returned to school. Non-student participants should email their final race times to email@example.com by end of day on October 17 in order to be posted on October 18. Please include your name and time in minutes and seconds.
I am an adult and I do not want to run or walk the 5k. What else can I do?
We have included an option for donations only if that is your preference. We are grateful for your support.
I am a parent and I'm confused. Am I doing this race more than once?
As a parent, how you complete your 5k is completely up to you. We'd love you to feel inspired to walk or run competitively, in which case you may find it easier to complete your own 5k and your child's 5k at different times. Be sure to email your final race time to firstname.lastname@example.org by end of day on October 17 in order to be posted on October 18. Please include your name and time in minutes and seconds. If you're not feeling particularly competitive, feel free to complete your own 5k distance alongside your child.
I need more help or have more questions. Who can I contact?
Please email the Glen School RED HSA at email@example.com with any questions you have regarding the event. If we cannot help you, we will direct you to someone who can.
