Conover School PTO invites you to the 5th annual Conover School 5K Run & Roll, where everybody runs or rolls!
Conover School serves approximately 150 students from Catawba County of whom are cognitively disabled, ranging in age from 3 to 22. Many of our students have severe medical and physical needs; many of our students are in need of total physical care and assistance; and many have other multiple disabilities such as visual impairments, hearing impairments, and autism in addition to their cognitive challenges. Student assignment to Conover School is through the IEP team process.
Proceeds from the race will be used to update the Conover School adaptive playground!
Special needs runners, walkers and rollers will be able to participate in a one mile race that will begin in conjunction with the 5K race. The registration fee for these athletes will be $10 which will include one race shirt (while supplies last). If your athlete will require assistance in the race, you (or whatever adult helper you will bring to participate) will not need to pay a registration fee. Shirts will also be available on race day for $12 on a first come, first serve basis.
The 5K, 5K Special Needs, and 1M Special Needs races begin at 8:00am. Day of race registration will be available from 6:30am to 7:15am.
