Foundation 153

Sept. 22 is date for 10th annual Foundation 153 walk/run, dash

Supporters of Homewood District 153 are gearing up for the 10th annual Foundation 153 5K run/walk and 153-yard dash on Sunday, Sept. 22. The fun starts at 9 a.m. 

Expanded Foundation 153 Fund Run event provides a day of fun and fundraising

The weather Saturday morning at the start of the annual Foundation 153 Fund Run was a bit north of humid, a bit south of drizzle, but not soggy enough to dampen the spirits of between 250 and 300 runners and walkers out to support the Homewood school district.

Following the 5K race, families gathered to cheer on young runners in the 153-yard dash, but perhaps the biggest cheer went to Tori Maszak, 7, who has cerebral palsy and used a walker to compete, with help from her great-grandfather, Robert Maszak. 

Changes in store for annual Foundation 153 Fund Run

Foundation 153 is making changes to the annual Fund Run for Homewood schools moving it up to Aug. 25, and expanding it to a multilayered event that will include games, a parents night out event and a teachers dunk tank.
