The C-6 Educational Foundation is seeking participants for its annual fundraising Fox Trot 5K and 1-mile fun run/walk, to be held Saturday, Sept. 29, at Arnold City Park on Bradley Beach Road off Jeffco Boulevard near the Meramec River. The 5K will start at 9 a.m. and the 1-mile run/walk at 10 a.m.
Entry is $25 for the 5K and $10 for the run/walk. Proceeds will go to the foundation, which provides educational and welfare grants to benefit students throughout the Fox C-6 School District.
Fox Trot participants who sign up by 10 a.m. Saturday (Sept. 15) will receive a free shirt, as well as a goodie bag, water and snacks. The overall male and female 5K winner will receive a $100 cash prize and trophy, and the top three 5K finishers in each age category will receive a medal. All those who take part in the run/walk will receive a participation medal.
A contest is being held to see which Fox district school can register the most participants for the event. The winning school will receive a $500 educational grant.
The Fox Trot also will include raffles and music. We Are One Community Choir members will sing the national anthem before the start of the run, and a small group of Seckman High School band students will perform.
Fox Student Council members will be on hand to help with the event.
