Run For the Green is GOING THE DISTANCE (from a distance)

Sunday May 17 – Friday May 29th

It’s time to RUN (or walk) for the GREEN! This year we will all be doing our own running or walking to complete the Run for the GREEN! Just log 1 hour of walking or running between May 17th and May 29th, fill out this form, and you will qualify for a vintage medal from Coach Lord.  Just that easy!        


  1. During the week of May 17th, students may either run or walk for an hour or do a total of one hour over several days.
  2. All forms must be submitted by May 29th.
  3. Remember to wear your mask during the run (if you are outside of your house) and maintain 6 feet of space between you and anyone not living in your household.
