For the last four years, this fundraiser’s proceeds have been used and will continue to be used to not only purchase but to maintain Boone Middle School’s fitness equipment. The race also teaches students how to choose and put forth a healthy lifestyle.
Also alike previous years, the race will be followed by a pancake breakfast and a Celebrate Families Health and Safety Fair. According to many runners, the free pancake breakfast is almost just as much fun as the run.
“I’ve actually run this race all four years, and every year to prepare for it, I run at the Y, in the mileage club at school, and around town. Like the last couple of years, my family and I are going to try and set personal bests and help each other improve in the process, and there’s always the pancake breakfast to look forward to. If you can’t find the motivation to finish the 5k, you really just have to remember the pancakes at the end.” Annual runner and student freshman Brett Patterson says.
By 8:00 am Saturday, it is highly anticipated that over 100 registered runners will show up and walk or run the 3.1 miles around the Cedar Pointe Golf Course. 5k race course can be found on the Toreador Trot 5K Run/Walk Facebook page.
