Let's do it Northside: 6,000 runners/walkers is the goal!

February 16, 2015

Similar to the San Antonio Spurs chasing a sixth championship this year, the Northside Education Foundation (NEF) has a "Race for Seis" of its own.

Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 2. The Foundation’s goal this year is to have 6,000 participants in the NEF 5K Run/Walk & Family Wellness Fair at SeaWorld, presented by CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System.

In 2013 and 2014, almost 5,000 runners and walkers participated, setting a record for NEF and the need to super-size from Farris Stadium to SeaWorld. This year, the Foundation’s 20th anniversary year, NEF is on a mission to continue to be a champion for NISD by getting 6,000 people across the 5K finish line.

Prices for the day include the following options:

·                     $25 - Individual registration for 5K only

·                     $50 - Family and Friends Group (Must be 3-6 members) – for 5K only

·                     $25 - Sleepwalker

·                     $30 – includes SeaWorld lunch and park ticket per registrant

·                     Parking is free for all options until 8:15 a.m.

·                     T-shirts and chip timing are sold separately.

Note: a one day park access pass is normally $60 at the gate (Aquatica is not included in the options.)

In addition, children under 10 can participate in the Kids Fun Run for free by registering on site. For those who prefer to sleep in but still want to donate, there is a Sleepwalker registration.

Because this event is a NEF fundraiser that generates funding for more classroom and department resource, innovation, and team grants, SeaWorld teacher passes and season passes will not be accepted as part of registration.

Make it a championship 5K for NEF and sign up for the race, lunch, and fun time in the park with NISD supporters! For more information and to sign up, please visit the NEF website and click on Apple Eddie. Contact the NISD Partnerships Office at 397-8599 for additional information.
