Rafael’s Race 1K & 5K is This Saturday – Run & Drawing Prizes Support Greenbelt Elementary School!!
This Saturday, October 7th, we invite you to run or walk with us as we remember the life of Rafael Martins, a 4th grade student at Greenbelt Elementary School (GES) who passed away in 2009 from a rare disorder called VATER syndrome. On one of Rafael’s last days at school he enjoyed a field trip so the money we raise helps all GES students attend educational field trips.
The weather for Saturday looks perfect for the race so please register to join us. You can also register on the day of the race, but please arrive by 8:30AM.
We are also selling drawing tickets for prizes like a weekend getaway, Washington Nationals tickets, Newseum tickets, Bee Yoga Fusion classes and more.
Calling all Volunteers!
This great event also needs volunteer help! Please sign up to volunteer so this race can be a success. We still need several more course marshals (stand on the course to direct and cheer on runners) as well as a few more people to help with post-race refreshments. Students can also earn service hours for volunteering. Sign up here – http://bit.ly/RafaelsRaceVolunteer
