The Polar Bear Walk/Run will be held at Four Corners Elementary School on March 31. The annual event, combining 5K and 1 mile races, raises funds for advanced technology ActivBoards for schools in the Superior School District.
“Our promise is to provide ActivBoards to each elementary school in the Superior School District,” wrote the race founders on their website, http://poplarbear5k.com.
The first year, the run raised $4,500 for Bryant Elementary School. The second year, Great Lakes Elementary School received $5,000 and was able to qualify for an additional grant from the maker of the ActivBoard, Promethean. This year, the funds will go to Four Corners.
The races will begin directly in front of Four Corners School with the mile starting at 9:10 a.m. and the 5K at 9:15 a.m. Early bird pricing is available through March 16.
