Nicole's Note: April 17th

On Saturday, April 23 starting at 8:00 a.m., LAUSD will be hosting the third annual LAUSD 5K ‘Move It’ Challenge and Health Festival at Dodger Stadium. This is a day for students, parents, employees and community partners to come together for a day of fun and fitness. This year’s event promises to be more exciting, featuring challenging 5K and 1K routes, new vendor booths, entertainment, food trucks, interactive games and activities, sports clinics, celebrity appearances, giveaways, and free parking. Proceeds raised for the event will support ourLAUSD Wellness Centers

As a special incentive, Target, a key sponsor of this year’s 5K, will award a $5,000 grant to the elementary, middle and high school with the highest number of student participants. The winning schools can use this grant to purchase supplies, materials or equipment related to health and wellness for their school sites. 

If your family would like to attend, I encourage you to registerbefore 12:00 midnight on Monday, April 18. Online registrationwill close and only those schools that have registered participants that attend the event will be considered for the grant award.
