This year’s t-shirt was designed by a 4th grader, Sophie B. at our school whose grandfather is undergoing treatment for Leukemia!

Nancy Strawbridge was an amazing teacher, mother and mentor. She inspired many of her own students to become teachers. The Co-Race Director Liz Henderson was mentored by Nancy and is now the Physical Education teacher at Creekside Elementary School.
