Reading is Fun 5K Run/Walk

Saturday, August 12, 2017

Planning has begun for the 7th Annual Reading is Fun 5K Run/Walk. The event will be held on Saturday, August 12 at Elm Creek Park Reserve.  Lace up your sneakers and team up with the District 279 Foundation and Kidstop (ISD 279 school-aged care program) and participate in the Reading is Fun 5K!  

While everyone loves supporting a good cause, many families also appreciate the health and social benefits of a run/walk. Proceeds from this family friendly event will be allocated to every media center (library) in every school building in ISD 279 – Osseo Area Schools to purchase learning resources.
