Why Run or Walk?
The 5k is a fundraiser for the scholarships sponsored through the Maple Education Foundation. The money raised by this years 5k will go towards scholarships for the class of 2015. The class of 2013 received 15 scholarships of at least $500. Last year’s 5k had 44 participants and raised $2000, which went towards scholarships for the class of 2014. The March 19, 2014 deadline is fast approaching for graduating seniors (class of 2014) who have not applied yet. Applications can be downloaded from the Maple Education Foundation’s website.
On Track for the Future
This year the run and walk will be starting and ending at Maple Heights High School (map). Dale Walter, Executive Director of the Foundation and Maple Board of Education Member, says they “will use whatever part of the new stadium that we can. It is hard to say exactly what will be complete depending on Mother Nature and the weather.” The 5k course will start at the high school and follow Mapleboro to Maple Heights Blvd to the old Stadium to Stockton and back down Maple Heights Blvd. to the high school.
