Put on your best costume and run/walk with us to support the PHILLIPS community.

Join us on Saturday, October 19 at scenic Burke Lake Park for our 2nd Annual 5K /Fun Run! Prizes will be awarded to the top runners in both male and female categories. Awards will also be presented for best costumes!

Did you know that in America 1 in 6 children go hungry?  At PHILLIPS over 50% of our students come from food insecure families.  They rely on breakfast and lunch during the school week; however, when we close for Thanksgiving and then winter break they go hungry.  Children who face barriers to nutrition struggle in school, experience a wide range of health problems and exhibit more social and behavioral challenges.  Hunger deprives our children of more than just food - it deprives them of a promise for a better tomorrow.   The proceeds from this race will purchase food certificates for parents to purchase food for their children when school is closed.   

Register for the race HERE.
