Here are some anecdotes about this year’s event, courtesy Anne Baunach, Executive Director of the Highline Schools Foundation:

  • There were several extremely generous donors, whose generosity allowed 126 children who would not have been able to run to participate in either the one-mile or 5K run.
  • HMS Host held their incredibly popular root beer float booth again providing hundreds of floats.
  • Roger Levesque (former Seattle Sounder FC player) did a great job starting the run.
  • The Port of Seattle funded all the entertainment this year – three bands including Los Flacos, The Smilin’ Scandinavians, and Cracker Factory.
  • We had incredible support from local schools through the school registration contest (this comes with some nice prizes for them).
  • North Hill Elementary had 68 paid registrants and will receive a check for $1,000!
  • St Francis had 54 paid registrations and will receive a check for $750. They were paired with one of our lower income schools and so Hilltop Elementary will also receive $750.
  • Highline High School registered 41 runners and so will receive a check for $500.
