Annual 5K run set for June 3

By Jason Arndt

In the last five years, Lakewood School has sought to bring the community together for its annual 5K run, which has changed themes to offer a fresh perspective for participants.

This year, the annual 5K run plans to go Lake to Lake, extending from the school to Lance Park Beach before returning to Lakewood.

District Administrator Joe Price, who has attended earlier events, said the 5K run bolsters bonds within the Village of Twin Lakes and beyond.

“It has always been a well-attended event and a great opportunity to bring staff, students, and community members together,” Price said.

Of all the 5K runs he has attended, the evening glow run was the most memorable for him and his family.

“The glow run from a few years ago was a blast and I brought my family with to participate,” he said. “Each year we have tried to change the venue to keep a fresh approach.”

Other venues Lakewood School used was the Twin Lakes Country Club, where participants ran the courses.

Along with the run, participants can enjoy music delivered by Lake Effect, food and a raffle drawing.

The drawing, according to school coordinator Missy Olson, was made possible through donations from families, staff and area businesses.

Cost, which includes a t-shirt, is $25 with proceeds benefitting the community and school reading curriculum.

“It is organized by a group of teachers,” Olson said. “We want to give back to the community, so 50 percent will go back to the community in the form of flowers for our beautiful downtown.”

The rest go towards buying new books for the reading department.

WHAT: Lake to Lake 5K
WHEN: 10 a.m. Saturday, June 3
WHERE: Starting at Lakewood, participants take a scenic route to Lance Park Beach, and back to Lakewood.
COST: $25 including a goodie bag and t-shirt
