The Surprise-El Mirage PTA Council is hosting its 2nd Annual Walking Together For Youth 5K Run/Walk. In conjunction with the city of El Mirage, our goal is to make the Walking Together For Youth 5K+ (3.3miles) a premier annual event to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in the lives of our children. Proceeds for this event will sponsor physical education programs in the Dysart Unified School District and extracurricular sports.
The event will feature a 3.3mile (5K+) race that begins and ends at Riverview Elementary, passing through some of El Mirage’s beautiful neighborhoods. Following the race, we plan to have an awards ceremony for overall winners, food and drink, along with vendor booths for our event sponsors. 1st -3rd place in each age categories will earn a medal: 19-29, 30-40, 41-55, and 55+ and are NOT gender specific will have a medal mailed to them. We are confident that we will attract a large number of student and adult runners/walkers. All paid entries will be entered into drawings for prizes like 4 Day Cruise, pair of Suns Tickets, and more! For more chances to win, raffle tix will be on sale for $5 each on day of event. This event is a fundraiser and is a fun, community building event. Only pre-registered participants are guaranteed a t-shirt. First 200 people guaranteed a race bib and goodie bag.
