Edmonds Public Schools Foundation is sponsoring the 3rd Annual Bill Hamilton Street Strut on Saturday, Oct. 8. This year the event is dedicated to GayLynne Ullerich, the late Madrona School physical education teacher, who died in a car accident in January.
The 5K fun run/walk begins at 8:40 a.m. for the childrens 1K and at 9 a.m. for the 5K in downtown Edmonds at the Civic Track/Playfield. Participants include hard-core runners, families pushing strollers and even some four-legged friends — all enjoying the route that covers some of Edmonds’ most scenic city streets.
The Street Strut will also kick off a new Edmonds School District Fitness Initiative — MOVE 60 — designed to get students moving. Through a grant from the South Snohomish County Commission for Health, the Edmonds Public Schools Foundation will partner with the district and the cities of Edmonds, Lynnwood, Brier and Mountlake Terrace to share the message that children need 60 minutes of active, vigorous physical activity every day to grow to a healthy weight. To keep kids active during the rest of the school year, the SSCCFH grant will also provide before- and after-school fitness programs for all students in the Edmonds School District.
The Street Strut will be awarding prizes for the top four participating schools as well as the coveted Golden Tennis Shoe trophy, so parents, staff and students should sign up for their school today.
