About This Activity

Real Winners of the Race for Education will be Whatcom County Kids

Day of Registration starts at 8:00.  Race begins at 9:00am.

Get your running shoes on, have fun and support students in Whatcom County.  Communities In Schools of Whatcom County hosts the 7th Annual Race For Education 5k walk/run on June 13th, 2015 at Civic Field in Bellingham.

The scenic racecourse starts and ends at Civic Field and winds through trails and paved roads. Last year over 200 people crossed the finish line. Communities in Schools (CIS) anticipates another successful turnout this year.

“I am excited that we are seeing more kids and families,” CIS Executive Director Dennis D’Amelio says. “Few kids who struggle at home do well in school. We are reaching out to families in all our programs so kids get the best support they can. The Race for Education is one example.”

The fun-filled event will feature race divisions, prizes for best race times and random drawings so everyone has a chance to win. Participants are encouraged to bring neighbors, friends, schoolmates and family to support high school graduation.

All proceeds from the race will benefit students in our community.  CIS provides case-managed supports for students and brokers existing community resources into schools through CIS Site Coordinators.
