Issaquah High School students have found a way to combine burning calories and fundraising for people in need.
The school’s Associated Student Body invites community members to register for the 5K December Dash. Proceeds benefit the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank.
The race is scheduled for Saturday at Lake Sammamish State Park. Registration start at 8:15 a.m. and the run starts at 9 a.m.
ASB Health Awareness Liaison Margaret Rauch and Cheer Liaison Sam Mele, both seniors, encouraged runners to bring their dogs with them to the Snow Much Fun Run.
Teacher Emily Carl said the run had a “very fun, relaxed atmosphere,” and added “there were a good amount of dogs last year.”
The run costs $15 for registration and a T-shirt. E-mail names, ages and shirt sizes to Carl at firstname.lastname@example.org. Mail checks to Issaquah High School, 700 Second Ave. S.E., Issaquah WA 98027, Attn: E. Carl. Checks should be made out to Issaquah High School.
The annual race started in 2008. Last year, students raised about $1,250, and donated the proceeds to the Adra P. Berry Memorial Food Bank in Preston.
