About This Activity

Why choose Chandler prep Academy’s 2nd Annual “Running of the Nerds” 1m, 5K and 10K run? To help further education! This race welcomes runners at all levels.

The goal---

You will be helping 82 students fulfill their fundraising goal for their 2016 Senior Trip to Washington, D.C. This is the ONE and ONLY opportunity the CPA students will have to help offset the cost related to their educational trip.


The School---


Chandler Preparatory Academy believes in each students' innate potential to comprehend the rich tradition of Western Civilization to which they are heirs and to grow in the virtues that mark a profound, philosophical life -- summarized by the triad of our Latin motto: verum, pulchrum, bonum -- truth, beauty, and goodness. The students' Senior trip is an important part of this classical education experience from which our school is modeled. During their time at Chandler Prep, the students focus exclusively on learning about Western Civilization. The trip to Washington D.C. enhances the focus of the Western Civilization by providing them an opportunity to physically experience the cultural and political left of our part of the Western world.


The run---


You will run through the beautiful SRP grounds and along the canal, before returning to our family style picnic. There will be activities for the kids, playground equipment, basketball hoops, a beach volleyball court, offering music in a relaxed setting. There will be awards for top 3 in each category, as well as an award for the BEST DRESSED NERD!
