June is a busy month here at School on Wheels. Not only are we already planning for the next school year AND getting ready for our summer program that takes place in July, but we also have a ton of different things happening that will support and spread the word about the kids we serve in Indianapolis! Want to help? Read on to learn more about everything that’s going on this month!
1. Thursday, June 18: RUN(317) Broad Ripple 5K
Tomorrow is the big day for the Scotty’s Brewhouse RUN(317) Broad Ripple 5K! You still have time to join the more than 1,100 individuals who have already signed up to participate in the 5K run/walk on June 18 that support our programs! Make sure to register online before 11:59pm this evening (Wednesday, June 17) to receive a discounted rate, or sign up day-of to run or walk the 3.17 course at Runner’s Forum in Broad Ripple!
Even if you aren’t able to run/walk the course, you are still invited to support our kids at the after party hosted by Do317! There will be a ton of great vendors there, including Greeks Pizza, 317 Burger, Canal Bistro, RETRO101 and more! Each of these vendors has generously donated a percentage of the proceeds at the post race party to support our programs. It’s going to be an amazing night and we can’t wait for you to join us.
