Ashburn, Va. (November 20, 2014) – The second annual Lace Up for Learning 5K will take place on Saturday, November 15, at Brambleton Town Center. This event will raise money for Loudoun schools while promoting school spirit.
In addition to the 5K run/walk, the event also features the Mascot Mini-Mile and a half-mile fun run. The event is held rain or shine and begins with a pep rally at 8:10 a.m. Participants are encouraged to wear school colors to display their school pride. To register for the race, please visit www.laceupforlearning.com.
Upon registration, each runner or walker designates a beneficiary school. The level of funds raised for each school depends upon the amount of participants from that school. The event is designed to benefit Legacy, Creighton’s Corner and Moorefield Station elementary schools, Stone Hill Middle School and Briar Woods and Rock Ridge high schools. In addition, local private schools attended by Brambleton residents (The Boyd School and St. Theresa Catholic School) are invited to participate.
The event is open to all members of the community. Educators and administrators are encouraged to participate and will receive discounted registrations. As an added incentive, a $500 bonus will be offered to the school with the highest percentage of participants and volunteers.
This school also receives a spirit trophy to display for the year. Last year’s trophy winner was Legacy Elementary.
