5K Race & Saturday Stroll

The Elkhorn Public Schools Foundation, in partnership with the Elkhorn Soccer Club, will hold their 1st annual 5K Run on Saturday, October 21st. We are offering a professionally timed 5K cross-country race and a Saturday Stroll with a 100 yard Kids Dash! The 5K race will take place on the Elkhorn High School Campus, beginning and ending in the football stadium.

More than just a morning of fun activity, it will be an important event to benefit special education programs for Elkhorn youth. The proceeds will aid both the Elkhorn Soccer Club’s TOPSoccer Program and the Foundation’s Classroom Grants program for Special Education in the Elkhorn Public Schools District. TOPSoccer is a US Youth Soccer program that stands for The Outreach Program for Soccer. It’s a program designed to provide opportunities for players who, for physical, mental or emotional reasons, cannot commit to a conventionally structured soccer competition. TOPSoccer participants include players with Autism, Down’s Syndrome, and physical disabilities. Through the Foundation’s Classroom Grant program, we are able to fund requests from Elkhorn Special Education teachers in the district for items such as thematic language and cross-curricular activities, equipment for sensory processing needs, toys for play skills therapy and much more!
