NORTON ELEMENTARY AND THE ALLEN EAGLE RUN NEEDS YOU!
Make plans for Saturday, February 25th!!
We have set our registration goal for Norton, and we need your help to meet it! Sign your family up for the Fun Run/Walk (roughly a mile) or the 5k, and enjoy the party atmosphere with samples and activities outside the Allen High School football stadium afterwards! Or, if you'd prefer, sign up for the Sleep In option: help us meet our goal, and stay in bed that morning (while donating to a great cause)!
Fun stuff: all entries get a light blue event T-shirt this year! If we meet our school goal, the entire school gets to eat lunch on the blacktop, AND those students (and teachers!) that entered get to tape Mrs. DeLeon to the wall with duct tape! Also, the AHS marketing students are selling red or blue fanny packs (think sleek and athletic, not the frumpy ones from 20 years ago!) and garment washed ball caps...add them to your registration and show your Allen pride!
: last day for paper registrations (from Wednesday folders)....last day to be guaranteed the size shirt you want...and last day to get $20 registration. Sign up now!
Cash, check, credit card accepted. Entry fees are non-refundable, including in the event of inclement weather -- your entry fee will be considered a donation to the Foundation for Allen Schools.
