The Great North Run is a 10K, 5K & Fun Walk/Run through the North Central High School campus and surrounding Nora neighborhoods. The registration fee includes race, recovery station with food and a fitness fair. All events are open to all walkers and runners. Funds raised support programs in our schools that tax dollars do not provide.
It was a great day in so many ways: the weather, the people, the FUN. A record breaking 2131 runners and walkers plus countless friends turned out for this year’s Great North Run & Fitness Fair on Saturday, March 14, 2015. What a great way to support public education in Washington Township!
At the end of the day, the Great North Run is a fundraiser, and raise funds they did…the totals are in and the event netted more than $47,000 to help fund programs in all schools in the district. Thank you to the Washington Township Schools Foundation for sponsoring the event and to all those who participated!
Money for Your School
A portion of every registration is given directly back to schools designated by participants. The more registrations a school has, the larger their check will be!
After the race, a Fitness Fair was hosted in the North Central gym. This free community event combines wonderful vendors sharing resources to foster ongoing development of a healthy lifestyle along with fun activities for the whole family.
