IDEA Public Schools hosting Virtual 5K Run/Walk to benefit Healthy Kids Here Initiative

Organizers with IDEA Public Schools announced they are set host their first-ever virtual 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, April 3, 2021, at 8 a.m.  

Officials share that as part of IDEA’s mission to become the healthiest district in America, IDEA hosts an annual 5K Run/Walk in each of its large regions to engage students, families, and the community in a fun, educational opportunity to be active.  

All proceeds from this year’s 5K will go towards IDEA’s Healthy Kids Here Initiative.

“IDEA started Healthy Kids Here seven years ago with the goal of becoming the healthiest district in the country,” school officials shared. “IDEA believes that in order for students to get to and through college and beyond, they also need a foundation of knowledge and skills necessary to maintain their health.”

In light of COVID-19, IDEA is switching to one virtual 5K Run/Walk, hoping that families, schools, and communities in Texas and Louisiana will train virtually for this year’s 5K Run/Walk together and develop a habit of being active together, while apart.  

As this is a virtual event, participants can partake in the 5K run/walk on their favorite trail, neighborhood, or gym. Participants can register online

Paid participants will get an official IDEA 5K shirt and bib. The first 300 registrants will get an official IDEA 5K medal.
