About This Activity

This 5k race benefits the Cindy Roof Wilkerson Foundation.  This Foundation was established in 2014, in honor of Cindy Roof Wilkerson, a 27-year veteran PE teacher at Springdale Elementary  School.  A forerunner of the current campaign against poor nutrition and physical inactivity, Cindy was compelled to address the need. In 2011,  she recruited a team of teachers, parents, and community volunteers and began crafting a plan to transform her school's 1960s, 2.5 acre playground into a modern, state-of-the-art outdoor healthy fitness zone.  The zone would be the initial phase of a larger, multi-phased plan to encourage healthier eating habits and an increase in physical activity among her students and community.  Money raised for this race will directly go towards future projects.
