This year, the rain held out and our Unity Fun Run went off as planned on Thursday, October 1st. Our physical education teacher, Alyssa, became the DJ and played pumping music for the runners. The students, siblings, parents and teachers ran/walked five laps on the driveway and Evergreen Place for a total of one mile. Several spry students ran more! Some staff members positioned themselves on the course to ensure safety and to cheer on the runners while others ran the course with the children. Before and after run, the children played on the playground, ate snacks and enjoyed some relaxing time together. This great time outdoors was a great way to raise funds for sustainable projects for Unity Charter School. We raised $710 just by running in circles! Keep training and we hope to hold this energetic event again in the spring.
