Calling all 1st- 3rd graders!

You’ve rocked the Apex Fun Run, now it’s time to join Willow’s Run Club. Get in shape and train for The Great Race, March 24th!

Last year, Willow had an increase in participation in The Great Race, and we want even more Wildcats to join us this year. To support this goal, we are offering a running club during 31-Minute Club (2:17- 2:48pm). Your child does not need to be enrolled in 31-Minute Club to participate. And it’s free!  

Click here to download the required Permission Form/Waiver, sign, and return to your child’s teacher ASAP.


WHO: 1st, 2nd, & 3rd grade Wildcats

WHERE: Willow’s grass play fields

WHY: To get in shape & have a great time with friends

WHEN: Mondays & Fridays, beginning February 5th, continuing up to The Great Race. Your child must be picked up at 2:48pm after 31-Minute Club. Please note: there will be no practice on Feb 16, 19, and the week of Mar. 12-16.          

We need and appreciate all parent volunteers! We need at least two parent volunteers for each grades at each practice. There will be no Run Club without enough volunteers, so click here to sign up at SignUp Genius.
