Shamrock Shuffle 2014
It’s Shamrock Shuffle time of year again for Plaza Midwood. This inaugural race, hosted by Shamrock Gardens Elementary School, is a fund raising event to strengthen the relationship between the school and surrounding community while supporting a school cause. Shamrock Gardens is the elementary school zoned for Plaza Midwood, Country Club Heights, and Plaza Shamrock neighborhoods. Here are some details about the race:
- March 15th at 9am
- 5K race begins and ends at Shamrock Gardens Elementary
- There’s a free kids 1/2 mile run and 100 Yard Dash
- Registration $30 – Bring cash/check to pay on-site
Last year, the race collected over $4000. 2014 hopes to see $6000 raised to fund the school’s Shamrock Scholar Summer Academy. The SSSA is a camp that provides rising 4th and 5th graders with additional support in math, reading, and writing. It is for kids who need some extra help and whose families may not otherwise be able to afford such a camp. The camp is not only educational, but also includes enrichment activities like field trips, etc.
Tomorrow’s going to be gorgeous (70 and sunny), so come on out to support your community, stay fit, and have some fun!
