Grier’s National Honor Society (NHS) is hosting a 5K walk/run on October 21, the Sunday of Grier’s Parents’ Weekend. All members of the Grier community (including all Parents’ Weekend visitors) are welcome to participate in the Grier Fox Trot 5K. Last year’s inaugural 5K was a great success, with over 70 participants raising money for the Global Giving Hurricane Irma Relief Fund. All proceeds from this year’s event will go to the Malala Fund, an organization that advocates for girls’ access to education around the world.
The race, which begins at 8:30am at the Grier colonnade, will meander through campus and parts of the village of Birmingham. As anyone who has visited campus before can attest, certain areas of the course will be hilly! This is a great event that brings together Grier families and the wider Grier community, supports a noble cause, and promotes physical well-being.
To learn more about the Grier Fox Trot 5K, including how to register, families can refer to their Parents’ Weekend Letter, see Parents’ Weekend information online in myGrier, or contact NHS advisor, Mrs. Michele Thibodeau.
