Fun Run

Fun Run is a special NPES tradition that allows our students to actively support the school by collecting donations from family and friends. This year’s event is scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020 and we’re going for it – virtually, of course. The Fun Run is going to look different this year, but Sharks won’t let that stop them! Normally, we’d run around our block (each lap is 0.3 mile) for 30 minutes. This year, we will be running together, but responsibly apart. You can run or walk in any location you choose – neighborhood sidewalks/streets, treadmill, forest preserves – whatever is best for you while staying safe. It doesn’t matter how far or how fast you go, just get up and move.

Our goal is to cultivate our strong community spirit, achieve 100% family participation, and raise $20,000 to support the NPES Fund. Remember to note who (name of child) should receive credit in the “in honor of” field. Don’t forget to document the fun and share your photos with the hashtags #farthertogether and #NPESrunningstrong. We can’t wait to see what you accomplish!
