Last year, the Groveport Madison Cruisers took home the trophy - and a $7,000 check in support of their athletic program! But it's up for grabs again this year in the 4th annual Cardinal Orthopaedic Spirit Sprint 5k Run/Walk.
Come out and show off your school pride! The district with the most participation will be awarded the largest percentage of the event proceeds with all participating schools receiving a portion of the funds generated based on their level of participation. Translation...everyone walks away a winner! To date, this event has raised more than $22,000 in support of local athletic initiatives.
Participating schools as of 02/18/2013:
* Gahanna Lincoln
* Groveport Madison
* Canal Winchester
* Licking Heights
* Pickerington Lacrosse Association
* New Albany
* Columbus School for Girls
Not affiliated with a participating school? Neutral runners are welcome, too! In fact, we encourage anyone interested in leading an active and healthy lifestyle to join the Cardinal VIP team and walk or run alongside our physicians and staff. Cardinal patients and employees email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a special CARDINAL VIP coupon code.
The day will feature family-friendly fun, including:
* bounce houses,
* great prizes,
* free food and more!
