The Avon Lake City Schools Foundation’s second annual Back to School 5K Run/walk is Sunday, Sept. 17 at 9 a.m. at Avon Lake High School, 175 Avon Belden Road. Included in the $25 pre-registration fee is a short sleeve tech shirt (guaranteed if you register by Friday, Sept. 1), chip timed results, refreshments, and music. Participants can also purchase raffle tickets for a chance to win a variety of prizes. Registration cost at the event is $30.
The event raises money for the Avon Lake City Schools Foundation’s endowment fund which is used to support educational enrichment grants that promote innovation and excellence for every Avon Lake student at every public school campus throughout the district, grades Pre-K-12.
The Foundation celebrated its 30th anniversary last year.
