|Run for the Schools quickly approaching|
The 2014 Run for the Schools event is rapidly approaching, scheduled for Sept. 27 at 8 a.m.
All proceeds from the event go directly to the WLCSD. Registration forms will be available at WL schools, various businesses and MidWestOne Bank.
This year, 2014, will mark the seventh annual race. In all, $40,000 has been donated to WLCSD because of Run for the Schools.
According to Retail Assistant Manager of MidWestOne Bank Josh Gingerich, it's a great way for people to show up and support the WLCSD, but it also promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.
One huge part of the event is the sponsorship," he said. "We are blessed to have local sponsors that are dedicated to supporting WLCSD. Simply put, without the generous sponsors, this event would not happen. I really cannot say enough about their support."
He added that volunteers are needed to help block off streets, direct traffic and runners, take incoming registration and to take and record incoming times.
He encourages all people, in any age or skill group to sign up and support our schools!
