The Cornerstone Foundation of Washington is a newly formed non-profit whose mission is to raise funds to build a permanent home for Cornerstone Christian School. Our "Back to School" 5K Run/Walk is geared for all ages. Registration begins at 8:30 am. We will begin at 9:30 am with some quick announcements, the FREE Kids (8 and under)Fun Run and then promptly start the 5K at 10:00 for all others. We will begin at the Thrive Community Fitness parking lot. The course quickly moves onto the Chehalis Western Trail to a turn-around point with a water station and returns you to the starting point. There will be plenty of volunteers pointing you in the right directions. At the end of the 5K you'll want to stick around for ice cream and the raffle! Hope to see you there!
