Last year's Street Strut start

The Edmonds Public Schools Foundation’s well attended Street Strut 5k race is getting a brand new look and name.

Now called the Celebrate Schools 5k Walk/Run, the October 13, race is strutting down the road and is being held at Alderwood Mall.

Celebrate Schools 5k Walk/Run still has the same look and feel as the ‘ol strut – timed race, fun crowds, entertaining bands, cheer squads , of course, the popsicle truck AND it benefits our Edmonds School District teachers and students.

This year, however, it’s on a faster, safer course!

Event proceeds will be returned to the participating teachers and students in the form of classroom grants.

“We applaud Alderwood Mall and General Growth Properties for their philanthropic vision, and are pleased to partner in our shared passions for harvesting education.  Moving the race to Alderwood Mall takes us back to our roots where it all started,” said Board President, Christie Flynn.  She added, “The name, ‘Celebrate Schools’ really captures what the Edmonds Public Schools Foundation is all about.”

For over twenty-five years The EPSF has supported students, teachers and schools by putting money we raise where it enhances student learning the most - directly into our schools and classrooms.

With an all-volunteer board and active community participants, the Foundation has successfully provided Edmonds School District with a dynamic partnership in educating our children.

Join them on October 13 and sprint across the finish line to Celebrate Schools!
