Barbara Bush Primary is getting a jump start on PTO fundraising for the upcoming school year by opening registration for their Oct. 12 Spooktacular 5K & Fun Run. And, making this one even more interesting, is the fact that participants are encouraged to run in costumes.
Not a runner? No problem. Walking or jogging is permitted. In keeping with the event theme, those who want to help but aren’t up for the run itself can also register for a ghost runner. Sign up and someone will run for registrants.
The event also promises plenty of activities for the whole family including kids’ games, activities, face painting, bounce houses and glow in the dark treats.
The Spooktacular benefiting Barbara Bush PTO will begin with registration and packet pick up at 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 12, with the Fun Run will starting at 5:40 p.m and the 5K scheduled to start at 6 p.m., on Celebration Plaza.
Those who register for the 5K by 11:59 p.m.Sept. 12 will pay $30 for registration. The fee increases to $35. Registration in the Fun Run is free for Barbara Bush students through noon Oct. 10; registration for all others is $10 through noon Oct. 10. Register a ghost runner for $30 through noon Oct. 10. Registration is being conducted online at GetMeRegistered.com, so an online processing fee will apply to all except the free registration.
