About the 1st Annual SJBS 5k Walk/Run

The first annual “We Are ALL Family 5K Walk/Run Race” benefiting the St. John the Baptist Family School, will be held on Saturday May 18, 2013, at 10:00 am in Chicopee State Park in Chicopee, MA. All proceeds raised from our event go directly towards the school budget to benefit EVERY member of the St. John the Baptist School family, which extends beyond the Ludlow town lines, into 10 surrounding communities. When we meet our financial goals, we ensure our school continues to operate in all aspects, at the high standards we expect and it ensures minimal to no tuition increases for our families.

We are striving to change the face of fundraising in our communities. 
We would love to see togetherness , generosity and health play a pivotal role in helping our extended family.

5K Walk/ Run Race and Kids in Motion

The 5K entrants will race on a paved scenic course following the "Healthy Heart" trail at DCR's Chicopee Memorial State Park. The course starts near the bath house and winds its way down to the lower reservoir, then 2 loops through the paved wooded trails of the park and finishing at the Bath House.  This race will be timed electronically and awards will be given to the top 2 male and top 2 female Runners in each age group. The age groups are divided as such: 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+.

The Kids in Motion entrants (ages 0-12) will participate in fun exercise related activities such as sack races and hula hoop games. The Kids in Motion area is on a grassy shaded area near the restrooms, our reserved picnic area and away from the water.
