5th Annual Rocket Run Blasts Off on April 28 at Inman Park Festival
The Mary Lin Education Foundation is holding its 5th annual Rocket Run 5K & 1 mile BLAST on Sunday, April 28, at 9 a.m. in partnership with the Inman Park Festival. The race runs through Inman Park and Old Fourth Ward. Start time for the 1-miler is 9:45 a.m. Register for the race at www.RocketRun.org or www.active.com.
The Mary Lin Education Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that raises funds for our community elementary school. The Foundation’s mission is to help Mary Lin Elementary achieve its educational goals by providing instructional, physical, and technological opportunities for the enrichment of Mary Lin students. Organizer Beth Fucile, parent of 1st & 4th grade students, says “This is a great annual event that lets kids see real runners in action while giving them an opportunity to race as well. One mile doesn’t sound like much to some, but for a 5-year old it can feel like a marathon.” She continues, “The Inman Park Festival has a special place in the heart of Mary Lin families with the great music, family fun, and incredible parade, so we’re very glad to be a part of their weekend.”
Cost is $30-5K, $20-1M. A Ghost Runner category allows folks to support the kids and get a t-shirt without having to run. T-shirts come with each entry and awards will be given by age and gender for the 5K. A Mary Lin Elementary 5th grade student designed this year’s logo. Sponsors and volunteers are needed to make this race a success for the school. For more information, contact email@example.com.
