Save the Date for Campbell Elementary’s 4th Annual Memorial Hermann Bunny Hop
Campbell Elementary will be hosting the 4th annual Memorial Hermann Bunny Hop Saturday, February 23, 2013, rain or shine.
The event, hosted by Bess Campbell Elementary in the Greatwood subdivision, encourages fun and fitness for the entire family, with a certified, chip-timed 5k, a Toddler Dash, and a 1-mile Family Run/Walk. This year’s 5k has been expanded to nine age groups: 5-8, 9-11, 12-15, 16-18, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+.
There will also be a silent auction, a live auction, a raffle presented by Team Sansone – RE/MAX Fine Properties, a post-race party with a health and fitness fair, an awards presentation, and new for 2013, a carnival.
“The whole community gets excited for this annual event, and the 2013 Bunny Hop promises to be the most fun yet, with the addition of a carnival and with more age groups in the 5k so more runners can show their stuff,” says Michelle Koerth, Principal of Campbell Elementary. “It’s such a pleasure to bring people together for a day of fitness and friendly competition, and we’re delighted to host it at Campbell because we’re so proud of our school. We hope everyone will get inspired to run, walk, or just visit the health fair to see what our community has to offer.”
Proceeds from the Memorial Hermann Bunny Hop will directly benefit Campbell Elementary. Past years’ Fun Run funds have helped supply classroom computers and Promethean boards, science lab upgrades, resurfacing of the track, grants to the art, music and physical education departments, and a shade structure for the playground.
