About this Event
This is the eighth annual 5k and 1 mile fun run for the Rockport Public Schools Health and Wellness Programs. The race was born from the desire to get our students and community more involved in health and wellness activities. This year, we are excited to be partnering with the Educational Foundation for Rockport (EFR). The money raised from this year's race will go directly to the EFR to be used for our health and wellness programs at the Rockport Public Schools. In the past, the money we have raised has gone toward planting trees to shade some of our classrooms, a new filtered water filling station, hydroponics planting system for our science room and support for our school garden and greenhouse. We were thrilled to be able to purchase 35 pairs of snowshoes for our physical education classes as well as fund guest speakers, yoga instructors for the district and this year we will be funding a new initiative at the elementary school called Choose Your Passion.
Cash prizes and free race entry to next years race will be awarded to the overall top male and female runners. There will also be prizes awarded for the top 2 runners male and female per age division. All 5K runners who cross the finish line will earn a Motif #1 5K race medal.
