Race set for elementary playground fundraiser

A new footrace has been launched locally in an effort to raise money to provide equipment for a new Elementary school playground. Named the 5K Burgher Dash, the race is to be held May 15 beginning at 9:30 a.m. The race course starts at the Elementary School on James Street.

Water will be available along the course. Cotton T-shirts will be available to the first 250 participants. Awards are to be handed out to the top three finishers overall in the male and female divisions. A children's fun-run will be held after the 5K event, and prizes will be given for all children who participate.

The advance entry fee for the adults' 5K entry is $20, and these discounted entries should be postmarked by April 30. Race-day entries are $25.

Race registration packets are available in the cafeteria from 7:30 to 9:15 a.m. on race day, or early pickup is available Friday May 14 from 3 to 5 p.m. in the Elementary School cafeteria.

No refunds are to be made. The entry fees collected are considered a donation to the Warrensburg Elementary School Playground Equipment fund. For details, contact Anne Downs at 623-9747 or via email at: downesa@wcsd.org or Chris Brown at 623-5055 or cbbrown21@aol.com
