Race will help fund Sellwood Middle School's electives

The Sellwood Middle School Foundation will hold a 5K race and walk Oct. 3 to raise money for art, band, Spanish and industrial arts staffing.

Chairwoman Lanell Nolf said the annual event, the Sellwood 5K: A Run/Walk for Education, provides much-needed funding and brings the community together. She hopes the new name -- it had been known as the Run for Ed -- attracts walkers and members of the wider neighborhood.

The Sellwood Middle School jazz and marimba bands will play before and after the 5K. The Trader Joe's store in Southeast will provide free water and snacks. Young children can take part in a free 1K run/walk.

The 5K route begins and ends at the school, 8300 S.E. 15th Ave., and loops on the Springwater Corridor Trail. Cost is $15 for students, $20 for adults and includes a T-shirt. Register online atwww.pps.k12.or.us/schools/sellwood, or mail or drop off the form at the school. Registration will be offered at the event, though T-shirts won't be guaranteed.
