Fly Like an Eagle 5K Race
Being physically fit and teaching children how important it is to be active seems to be a constant struggle that we, as a society, are facing today. That’s why I always think it is extremely important when different organizations join together to promote the benefits of physical fitness. The parents, teachers and students of the C. Hunter Ritchie Elementary School in Fauquier County are coming together this weekend on Sunday, April 29th for the Fly like an Eagle 5K Race. The event will start at the Inn at Vint Hill Farms and will begin at 8:00am. The registration fee for adults to sign up and run is $20.00 and $15.00 for kids, ages 5-11.
Not only does this race show kids how important it is to be active and maintain a healthy lifestyle, but the proceeds made from this race all go directly to the C. Hunter Ritchie Parent-Teacher Organization. The Parent-Teacher Organization has a goal of initiating more events that help students and their families develop good fitness habits. Each registered runner in the race will receive a free t-shirt in their race packet. If you still haven’t registered for the race, there is still time!
