Come join us for a fun, timed 5k Run/Walk on September 17, 2017, and support a nationally-recognized San Francisco public elementary school! Our fast, flat course runs through Golden Gate Park down John F Kennedy Dr. and all proceeds benefit Lafayette Elementary School. Cheer on our students as they participate in a pledge run/walk-a-thon.

This upcoming school year, we are specifically raising money to support our school’s high caliber of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) academic excellence by paying for our technology teacher, outdoor science teacher, and online technology programs. Our goal is to raise at least $15,000 to fund these critical teacher positions and our online technology programs. It is our mission as a PTA to empower each child at our school to reach their academic potential and to make the educational tools they need to succeed accessible to them regardless of socioeconomic status.

Elites, Weekend Warriors, Families, Strollers, and Wheelchairs are all welcome! (Dogs, however, will have to stay home for this event.)

JFK is closed to cars on Sundays, so please come join us for the race and hang out afterward for a picnic, bike ride, and just general community mingling.
