The 2014 Northside Education Foundation (NEF) 5K Run/Walk and Family Wellness Fair, presented by AXA, takes place Saturday, March 29. In 2013, almost 5,000 participated, setting a record for NEF and the need to super-size from NISD's Dub Farris Stadium to SeaWorld.
Funds raised are used for classroom and department resource, innovation and team grants that help faculty and staff maintain innovative programs that benefit the District's 101,000-plus students.
The early registration deadline is March 7. The deadline to register and get your name on your race bib has been extended to Feb. 28.
The following registration options apply through March 7 and will increase after the deadline:
· Individual registration is only $25.
· Family registration, for a minimum of three and maximum of six people, is only $50.
· There are also Individual Super and Family Super Deals to take advantage of that include 5K registration, lunch and access to the park all day after the race (Aquatica not included).
o The Individual Super Deal is only $50.
o The Family Super Deal includes the regular $50 registration and is $30 per person for lunch and access to the park.
All registration options include free parking until 8:15 a.m.
Join us for not just the 5K but also for lunch and time in the park with thousands of NISD supporters for less than the cost to pay regular park admission (which is $65 at the gate) and less than cost of comparable 5K registration fees. There isn't another 5K in town that offers this super deal!
In addition, registered children under 10 can participate in the Kids Fun Run free. For those that prefer to sleep in but still want to donate, there is a Sleepwalker registration. T-shirts and chip timing are sold separately.
Don’t miss out on these super deals! For more information and to get signed up, please visit www.nisd.net/nef/5K and click on Apple Eddie. Please call the NISD Partnerships Office at 210-397-8599 for more information and to learn more about ways to volunteer and earn community service hours.
