Update: Celebrate Schools 5K raises $77,000

Two- and four-legged runners take off down the track.

Over $77,000 was raised at the Celebrate Schools 5K held on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Fifty percent of the event proceeds will be granted to the 21 participating schools who fielded teams of twenty or more. The remaining proceeds will fund Foundation programs that benefit students, teachers and schools in the Edmonds School District.

“We want to extend a special thank you to all who came out to run, walk, stroll or wag with us this year,” said Deborah Anderson, the Foundation’s Executive Director. “It is always a spirited community event. The Foundation would also like to thank our title sponsor, Virginia Mason, our presenting sponsors, the City of Lynnwood and GGP – Alderwood Mall, and all our other great community sponsors who helped to make this event possible.”
