Six local schools will receive a total of $18,000 thanks to the hard work and determination of runners who participated in the 19th Annual FishHawk Ranch Road Race.
Bevis Elementary, FishHawk Creek Elementary, Stowers Elementary, Barrington Middle, Randall Middle and Newsome High schools will each receive $2,827 to be used for educational enhancements. Additionally, the FishHawk Road Runners will receive a $1,500 contribution to its scholarship fund.
“We’re so pleased be to able to give back to the FishHawk Ranch community each year as a result of our annual Road Race,” said Lynda McMorrow, marketing manager for Newland Communities. “The local education system is an integral part of the FishHawk Ranch community, and the race has become quite a tradition in the area.”
More than 500 runners of all skill levels participated in this year’s 5k and kid’s races (half-mile and one-mile), which featured a new location in the Central Park Neighborhood of FishHawk Ranch. Hundreds of residents also turned out to cheer on the runners as they raced throughout the FishHawk Ranch community.
Plans are underway for the 20th annual FishHawk Ranch Road Race now, to be held in January 2017.
