Barnstable Education Foundation Holding 2nd Annual Walk/Run for Success

RunningCENTERVILLE –The Barnstable Education Foundation will be holding their second annual Walk or Run for Success on Saturday.

The start and finish line will be at Centerville Elementary School and starts at 10 a.m.

There are prizes for the first overall male and female 5k/10k runners and first in each age group male and female 5k/10k runners.

The purpose of the Foundation is to receive, raise and administer the funds for the benefit of the students in the Barnstable Public Schools.

“We wanted to build an organization that could help fund classroom grants for teachers and provide some unique educational experiences for the students in Barnstable Public Schools,” said Barnstable Board Member Karen MacDonald.

The funds are dispersed through grants that provide support for creative projects and educational programs.

“We have a lot of people now on board that help us with our events and work towards this end,” said MacDonald. “We’d also like to build up an endowment so that there would be money coming each year to the schools.”

Canned goods and non-perishable food items will also be collected at the event for the local food pantry.
