Westbriar PTA, Fairfax Friends Forever, and Westbriar's Student Counsel are teaming up again to hold their Annual 5K Run and 1 Mile Fun Walk at Westbriar Elementary to raise awareness for the importance of service learning and to raise funds to support local organizations. This year's event will support the Pediatric Specialists of Virginia and the American Cancer Society, in honor of Westbriar alumnus Kelly Brodnik, “Kelly Strong”, and all survivors of cancer. The first $5,000 raised will be split between the two charities and the remaining money will go back to Westbriar Elementary PTA. The PTA plans to use the money to purchase technology equipment among other things for the school.
This event is open to all Westbriar students, families, faculty, and any interested community members. Snacks and water will be available at the conclusion of the run-walk. The 5K is guaranteed to another morning full of fun and all for a good cause. There will be door prizes, sponsor tables, crafts, tattoos, balloon animals, baked goods, music and dancing, and more! Registration includes all of the above, and if you register before March 19th, a race t-shirt designed by our very own grade 6 students! We will race rain or shine!
**ALL students must be accompanied by a parent or babysitter of at least 18 years of age. Parents/guardians/babysitters do need to register**
To help make this event successful, we need volunteers to help set up, clean up, and help manage the course during the race. If you're able to help out, please sign up using the link below! https://goo.gl/uMTjXV
