About This Activity

Come join the fun and run the Franklinstein!  The event creeps, twists, and turns through the Greenlawn and Woodland cemeteries in the early morning fog right before Halloween!

This event is being held to support the Franklin School CAREs Committee and Parent Teacher Council.  All proceeds will be used to support the students at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School.  Many of the students at "Franklin" live below the poverty line.  This event aims to provide funds to help allow all students to participate in non-school funded activities and support families as needed.  Previous year's proceeds have helped students attend Nature's Classroom, a student-paid field trip, go on swimming field trips, or simply afford new shoes.  Your participation in this event is appreciated by ALL members of the "Franklin School Family!"
