The Â was the best yet! More than three thousand runners were on hand to run around the State Capital. This year’s shirt with the theme â€œHappy 30th Birthday Mayor’s Runâ€ was designed by Evyn Shafer, a sixth grader from Lincoln Christian School. Prescott Elementary, Beattie Elementary, and Lincoln Christian were the top schools in the participation contest. Great Job!
In addition to running, the Mayor’s Run raised $3,665 for this year’s charity: Woods Tennis Centerâ€”Taking the Game to the Community. Since 2002 the Mayor’s Run has donated $53,000 to local charities! Thank you to our sponsorsâ€”KFRX, Sandhills Publishing, Lincoln Running Company, LinPepCo, The Bike Rack, and Nebraska Heart Institute. And finally, THANK YOU to all the PE teachers, coaches, and parents who helped promote and sign kids up for the Mayor’s Run. Mark your calendarsâ€”race day isÂ May 5, 2018.
