Please join your GES PTA in the 2017 Rafael’s Race in order to raise money for student field trips.
Rafael Martins was a student at Greenbelt Nursery School and Greenbelt Elementary School. He was born with a rare disease called VATER syndrome and passed away on October 20, 2009 while he was in the 4th grade. In 2011, teachers, parents, and friends of Greenbelt Elementary School started a race in his honor.
The 1K fun run/walk and 5K race raise funds to support student field trips at Greenbelt Elementary School and provides a donation to Camp Sunshine, a retreat for kids with life- threatening illnesses and their families. Drawing tickets are also sold ($2 each or 6 for $10) at the school and Co-op Grocery store for prizes like tickets to the Newseum, baseball games and more. T-shirts are also available for sale. Students (current & former), parents, friends and community members are all invited to participate or volunteer.
