Hodges Elementary will be hosting the Anne B. McKellar Memorial 5K, a benefit for the American Cancer Society. This event is held in memory of Anne B. McKellar, a long time District 50 teacher who battled cancer.
On May 6, we will be hosting a Kids' Fun Run at 8:45 with a 5K run at 9:00 a.m. The 5K course runs from the school, through town, and about 3/4 of a mile down Dixie Drive, before turning around and returning to the school. Runners have enjoyed the smooth, flat course.
Additionally, the kids' fun run is hosted in the rear of the school and does not involve any roadways. The 5K event has open registration from now until race day (walkups welcome) with a registration fee of $25. The Fun Run has open registration through race day with a fee of $15. Shirts will be included with all entries. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.
Anyone can register by visiting the school's website (https://www.gwd50.org/domain/2796) or by emailing Jennifer Baker (email@example.com).
