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!  

Franklinstein's goal is to instill the excitement of fitness and community to its grades K-5 students, friends and families.  All proceeds will be used to support the students at Benjamin Franklin Elementary School. ​​This event aims to provide funds to enable 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 provide other supplies that aide student's basic needs. 

Your participation in this event is appreciated by ALL members of the "Franklin School Family!"
