2013-10-03 20:06:54 - WEST CHESTER, PENNSYLVANIA (October 5, 2013) Goshen Friends School asks you to join us for our 1st Annual Get Going for Goshen 5K on Saturday, October 5, 2013, 814 North Chester Rd, Wes Chester, PA 19380. Our Goshen Goal is to make Get Going for Goshen a premier annual event to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity in the lives of our children. Proceeds from this year’s event will support our physical education program and furnish needed sports equipment for our students.
Goshen Friends School (GFS) is in its second year of The Feelin’ Good® Mileage Club walking/running program for schools. Last year, our students and staff logged a total of 690 miles that helped us reach Indianapolis, IN (619 miles from GFS). Our goal is to get across the United States by tracking our journey using the state capitals. The Mileage Club takes place around the soccer field Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 12:30-1pm during lunch recess. Walking/running helps develop fitness while building muscles, burning calories, reducing stress, increasing children’s learning readiness and creating good lifelong habits in our
fight against obesity.
The event will feature a 5K race starting at Goshen Friends School at 11am with the 2 mile run/walk at 11:15am.
Registration opens at 10:30am. The run/walk will take the path from Goshen Friends School through East Goshen Park, continue through Applebrook Preserve, and end at the School. Following the race will be our annual Harvest Fair open to all in the community. Join us for family fun games, arts and crafts, music and food.
If you have questions about the Get Going for Goshen 5K and 2 mile Fun Run/Walk, please contact Stephanie Lantz, Director of Development, at Stephanie.email@example.com
. We look forward to your help in promoting healthy, active living and sponsoring a fun, positive event for all to enjoy.
