Donnovan’s 5K Run – March 10, 2018

The 5th annual Elysian Heights 5K Run/Walk brings together the community and highlights our focus on health and wellness. This event is funded through donations, and 15% of all funds raised will be donated to the American Lung Association. It is free to participate in the Run/Walk, but anyone who wishes to receive a medal and t-shirt needs to make a tax deductible donation. A few years ago, the school was devastated by the death of Donnovan Castellanos, one of our 4th graders. In tribute to Donnovan, who loved the 5K, the Run/Walk is now called Donnovan’s Run.

Special thanks to our contributing author, Dove Williams, 5th Grade student.
