On Saturday, April 27, 2013, we will have our 3rd Annual Run for the Woods fun run. This year’s fun run will be in honor of two of our Andy Wood’s staff members, Coach Ashley Phelps and Gloria Torres. Coach Phelps is in her fourth year of teaching PE at Woods and Mrs. Torres has been a custodian at Woods for five years. This past fall Coach Phelps had a car accident in which she was severely injured, and Mrs. Torres’ husband has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. All proceeds from this event will be given to these two Andy Wood’s employees to help with medical expenses.
You can pre-register for the run by completing and returning the attached form along with payment through your child’s teacher or by mail. The pre-registration deadline is April 12th. Participants who pre-register for the run by the April 12th deadline will be guaranteed a run t-shirt that can be worn to school as part of the school uniform. You may register for the run after the deadline, but these participants will not be able to receive a t-shirt. Registration on the day of the run will begin at 7:30 am. (Run t-shirts will not be available for these registrations) Students and staff of Andy Woods will receive their t-shirts and numbers the week of the run. These items will be sent home through their teachers. Other pre-registered participants may pick up their numbers and t-shirts on Friday, April 26th from 4 to 6 pm on the front sidewalk of Racquet & Jog, 5403 South Broadway, or at 7:30 am at the registration tent before the run.
1st, 2nd and 3rd place awards will be given for each age group for the 1 mile and 5K runs. All 50 yard dash participants will receive a certificate. You must be present to receive your award. For more information contact: Jennifer Rainer, 903-570-4115 or email@example.com.

As always, part of our school’s mission is to promote happy, healthy children. Last year, our Run for the WOODS! helped one of our students Jordan Samples. He was diagnosed with a brain tumor and the event helped his family with medical costs.
