Edinboro, PA (April 25, 2017) – The Third Annual GM Community Fun Run is returning to General McLane High School grounds on May 27, 2017.
“This event is a great kick-off to summer for families,” said Edinboro Elementary PTO president Renee Foradori. “It’s a way for the entire community to get together to raise money for our public schools.”
Hosted by Edinboro Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and McKean Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), this is a collaborative fundraising event for both schools and will go toward helping teachers with classroom expenses and subsidizing field trips. More than 180 runners participated in last year’s event, which raised more than $1500.
This year’s event will continue to have different obstacles and color stations are placed throughout the 5k and 1milerun/walk (two different options). A dunk tank featuring school staff and additional entertainment will also available.
Register by April 28 to be assured a shirt. The registration form can be found at generalmclane.org. You can register day of race (9:30-10:30 a.m.), but shirts will not be available.
