The Third Annual Chase the Antelopes 5K Run/1 Mile Walkis back and better than ever!
Just like in previous years, this event is planned entirely by the eighth-grade students. Over the course of a few months, they have had to plan and organize this event: getting sponsors; designing posters, t-shirts, and websites; submitting articles to newspapers to promote the event; writing letters and emails to businesses, community residents, and school personnel. This project has helped the eighth grade work toward building citizenship skills by giving students the opportunity to make a positive impact in the community.
This entire event will benefit the Hannah Milbert Memorial Fund. Three years ago, Hannah passed away in a fire at her family home. She would have been graduating from Avonworth this year; therefore, we are doing everything we can to make it the best race yet! All the proceeds from this event will benefit her scholarship fund.
The race will take place on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. The course for both races start at Lenzner Field, which is next to Avonworth Middle/High School and go through nearby neighborhoods (Cobblestone and Avonworth Heights).
Registration is open! If you register by April 1st the fee is only $15. After April 1st, registration increases to $20. Prizes will be given to the top three runners, both overall and in age groups. Age groups range from the following ages: 1-13, 14-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60+.
To make this a successful event, we need your help. The more people involved the better!
