 Reading 5K

Help our site earn a grant by registering for the Reading is Fun 5K Run/Walk which will take place at Elm Creek Park Reserve on Saturday, August 10. District 279 Foundation partners with Kidstop (ISD 279 school-aged care program) to coordinate this healthy and social opportunity to advocate that reading is fun! Funds raised from this family friendly event will be allocated to media centers in Osseo Area Schools to purchase learning resources. The top two sites with the largest percentage of registered participants (based on site size) prior to the end of the school year (June 6) will receive a grant! Register today!
