10th Annual Wish Run at Windermere
by Sarah Wheeler, AmeriCorps Fellow, Windermere Elementary
After researching multiple organizations and charities, Windermere Elementary, students have chosen Nationwide Children’s Hospital to donate their Wish Run proceeds to!
These students have come a long way with this project. Early in the school year, they participated in an "Imagine a World" lesson where each classroom decided on an "Imagine a World" statement to share with all the students in the school. The Student Council then narrowed down a list of organizations to four charities that they felt best represented Windermere students' statements. The Student Council contacted the charities for information to help them educate the other students about each charity. They put this information on display for the rest of the school so that every student could vote in an informed way as to which charity would get the Wish Run proceeds.
The 10th annual Wish Run will take place on Saturday May 11, 2013. The 5K run/walk will take place at 9:00 a.m. and the 1 mile fun run at 10 a.m.
