CEDAR PARK 5K
Cedar Park PTC's Only major fundraiser
The annual Cedar Park Middle School 5K is a school-wide fall event that promotes fun and fitness, while raising funds for the incredible programs and events provided by the PTC. This year's event is scheduled for Thursday, 10/3/19.
Students will solicit pledges/donations, then run, jog, dance or walk their way to the finish line. The money raised supports programs that directly enrich students' education and impact their positive student experience.
The 5K will focus on boosting PARTICIPATION, meaning ANY donation, from $1 to $1000, helps students earn a school-wide participation reward.
How does it work?
On the day of the event, each class will run, jog, or walk a 5K around CPMS. Each student will be issued a different color bracelet for each leg of the race that they complete as a record of participation.
Parents will man various fun stations to cheer, encourage, and probably embarrass their middle schoolers. The goal is to have fun, get outside, and enjoy the Cedar Park community. Parents are welcome and ENCOURAGED to attend.
