Race Day Volunteers Needed! HELP SET-UP, HAND OUT RIBBONS AND PRIZES, FACE PAINTERS AND HAPPY SMILING PEOPLE NEEDED FOR SOME GREAT FAMILY FUN!
The Family 5K and Fun Run brings families together to celebrate health and wellness, support educational enrichment for community students Register today for the third annual Family 5K and Fun Run, taking place in the heart of Vienna on Sunday, May 3. The race, put on by the Oakton Elementary School (OES) PTA, is a fun way for families to celebrate a healthy lifestyle and get active together.
The OES PTA created the race to raise money to enhance the educational experience of OES students, promote healthy lifestyles, and build and strengthen the bonds of community in Oakton and Vienna where OES students and families live, learn, work and play. This year, family e-newsletter Red Tricycle included the Family 5K and Fun run as one of their favorite races in the area.
“Whenever our school can create opportunities for our students, as well as others in our community, to do something healthy for themselves, it’s a win-win,” said Christine Gray, Oakton Elementary’s principal. “This run is the perfect example of OES coming together as a school to promote health and wellness, while having fun, and embracing the Oakton/Vienna community.”
Families are encouraged to participate in the event together. In addition to the race, come out to participate in other family-friendly activities like an obstacle course, face painting, entertainment and more! The race is open to all members of the community.
