Six thousand participants expected for 5K "Race for Seis"

April 12, 2016

April 15 is the early bird deadline to sign up for the annual Northside Education Foundation (NEF) NEF Run/Walk & Family Wellness Fair slated for Saturday, May 7.

Similar to the San Antonio Spurs chasing a sixth championship this year, the Foundation’s goal this year is to have 6,000 participants at the event, which will be held again at SeaWorld, presented by CHRISTUS Santa Rosa Health System.

In 2014 and 2015, almost 5,000 runners and walkers participated, setting a record for NEF. This 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 (11 years & up)

·                     $60 - Family and Friends Group (Must be four people) – for 5K only

·                     $25 - Sleepwalker (sleep in, support NEF)

·                     $35 –SeaWorld lunch and park ticket per registrant (Aquatica not included)

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

·                     T-shirts and chip timing are sold separately.

Fees double after April 15.

Note: A one day park access pass is normally $69 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 a fun time in the park with NISD supporters! For more information and to sign up, please visit www.nisd.net/nef/5k and click on Apple Eddie. Contact the NISD Partnerships Office at 397-8599 for additional information.
