More than 300 runners and walkers turned out for this year’s Spring for Kids Run Saturday, March 10, making the ninth annual fundraiser for the Corvallis Public Schools Foundation a huge success.
CPSF director Brenda VanDevelder said a final tally was not yet available, but that the event raised more than $11,000, a 25 percent increase over last year’s run/walk. The annual Spring Run for Kids is the foundation’s largest fundraiser and has provided more than $50,000 in grant funds for teachers and classrooms in Corvallis since it began in 2004.
Over 60 volunteers helped manage registration, refreshments and course safety throughout the day. Dozens of other sponsors, as well as prize and refreshment donors, helped make the event a great experience for everyone involved.
