On Saturday, October 7th, 2017, the Magnolia Educational Enrichment Foundation (MEEF) hosted its 2nd annual Fit & Fun 5K Run.
The event had tremendous support from Magnolia School District Employees, students, their families, and community members, with nearly 700 participants. Over $1,500 in donations made it possible for a great deal of students to participate in the run. Esther L. Walter School won the coveted “Golden Shoe” award by having the most participants from a single site.
Each participant received an event shirt and medal. The logo for the shirt was designed by Ambar Thanki, a 6th grade student from Juliette Low School of the Arts. Shay Tiettmeyer, a 3rd grade student from Dr. Peter Marshall School, sang the National Anthem in front of the huge crowd.
It was great to see students as well as community and staff members running along with their families and friends. Proceeds from this event will help fund teacher grants throughout the year.
