Halloween Hustle returning in October

XENIA — Xenia Community Schools and the school’s foundation will hold the fourth annual Healthy Halloween Hustle in October.

The virtual event is a 5k fun and health-oriented run/walk/tread throughout the month. Participants will set a goal of completing one, two or three 5k walk/run/treads. Upon reporting back completion of their commitment (done on their own or with friends at a time and place of their choice), registrants will be awarded a participation medal in bronze, silver or gold based on the goal they achieved.

The annual event is a fundraiser for the foundation, which provides grants for teacher and classroom enrichment programs from donations and investment income. The Xenia Community Schools Foundation Board of Directors just announced almost $25,000 in grant awards for the 2018-2019 academic year.

All registrants will receive an event shirt to wear during the entire month of October. Those who simply want to support the fundraiser can just register and receive a shirt. Registration is due Friday, Sept. 14 to be guaranteed a shirt by Oct. 1. All registrants will receive additional information about shirt delivery and reporting process.
