SUB-FOR-SANTA 5K

Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE -

The Springville Ki­wa­nis Club will hold its Sub-for-Santa 5K on Oct. 10 at 9 a.m. at the Springville High School sta­dium.

How many ways can a 5K race sup­port our lo­cal kids? Many!

First, part of the pro­ceeds goes to the Springville Ki­wa­nis Sub-for-Santa ef­fort. This in­cludes gift cards and a food drive that pro­vides hun­dreds of Springville fam­i­lies with ex­tra sup­port they need dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. Last year, over 1,200 pounds of food and over 600 gift cards were dis­trib­uted to fam­i­lies in need here in Springville to brighten their Christ­mas. 5K pro­ceeds also go di­rectly to spon­sor­ing school or­ga­ni­za­tions. This year Springville High School, Sage Creek Ele­men­tary and Cherry Creek Ele­men­tary will ben­e­fit by each run­ner they sign up. SHS’s Key Club and Drill Team will help work the event, giv­ing the kids op­por­tu­ni­ties to serve their com­mu­nity. The Key Club and lo­cal Scout troops help with the food drive too. Kids help­ing kids. That’s a win­ning com­bi­na­tion!
