– From Yelm Community Schools about “Hop for Hunger”:
Date: Saturday, March 31, 2018
Event Time: 5K starts at 8:30 AM Family Fun Run (1 mile) starts at 9:30 AM
Parking: Please park in the Mill Pond Elementary Parking Lot next to Ridgeline MS (909 Mill Road SE, Yelm, WA)
Event Description 5K: Event start line is on the back of Ridgeline Middle School in Yelm, WA. The 5k run will be down Carter Street, across highway 507 (via crosswalk) and utilizing the paved Yelm-Tenino trail. The finish line is back at Ridgeline Middle School, making this a great 5k walk/jog/run if this is your first time or if you are an experienced runner! *Race is chip timed by BuDu Racing.
Family Fun Run: Families of all ages are welcome to register for the family fun run! Utilizing the track at the school, families can sprint, dash, jog, or walk their way around the track- enjoying music and good company for a fantastic cause!
Cost: What a steal! $20 per adult for the 5K race and $15 per child under 12 for the Family Fun Run! Both get you a fantastic time and all pre-registrants will receive a Hop for Hunger t-shirt!
Why: Participants who like our Facebook page or sign up with an email address will receive information about our FFA campaign, “Plant an Extra Row” – as well as seeds to encourage participants to plant the seeds, and then donate the produce grown to our local food bank. Hopefully, this will be a step in combating the lack of fresh produce available to families in need in our community!
