Medals will be awarded to the top five boys and top five girls in each race”.

 

The Fun Run started out not only as a fundraiser for the school’s running programs but as “a way to encourage kids to be fit and healthy”, said Head Girls Track Coach, Vicki Bevan. “The goal is to make running fun”.

 

Prior to the start of each race there will be stretching and warm ups presented by Klein Collins Cross Country & Track teams. The KC Tigers will also accompany youth on their run, and lead them in cool down activities afterwards.

The Walk, which commemorates lives touched by blood cancers, is a celebration, with music, refreshments and family activities.
