As I sit here starting out the window at the rain pouring down, I can't help but think of Spring. Sure, the precipitation here in Oregon doesn't really leave (ever), but there is just something about that changing of the seasons and knowing that we are close to Summer that makes it a milestone in my life. The 11th Annual Spring for Kids 10k/5k/2k, held on March 8 in Corvallis must feel the same way.
This race is primary fundraiser for the Corvallis Schools Foundation’s Innovation Grants. Recent grants awarded include funds for high school students to start a bee keeping program, digital classroom equipment for high school writing classes, iPad applications for a k-2 handwriting pilot program, and funds for the dual immersion classrooms at Lincoln Elementary.
There were over 300 runners who completed last year on the country roads and bike paths over the Corvallis area. View the maps for each event here. The race is said to offer a little something for everyone. There will also be the Healthy Moves Expo, which will feature dozens of ideas and activities to show individuals how to lead an active and healthy lifestyle. Register NOW for the run/walk HERE.
