The Wolftrap Elementary School PTA in Vienna hosted its 9th annual 5k and Fun Run on Sunday, April 12. This annual event raises funds essential for programs at Wolftrap Elementary School, which has offered children a safe, nurturing and challenging learning environment for over 40 years.
The event featured a timed 5K race as well as an untimed one mile fun run/walk. More than 500 racers and supporters gathered at the school - more than 200 of those were Wolftrap students - and enjoyed music provided by DJ Darin Pusker of Belt It Out Productions, entered for raffle baskets, prizes, giveaways, and a “Cake Walk.” More than 20 raffle baskets included items ranging from tickets to D.C. professional sporting events to merchant gift certificates, spa and sports items. A special appearance was also made by ABC 7’s Meteorologist, Jaqui Jeras, who ran the race and then helped announce the winners.
With the support of Title sponsors Amit Kaim (Atlantic Coast Mortgage), The Burger Law Firm, Koons Tysons Toyota, Pagnato Karp & Holt - Hightower Advisors, Sun Design Remodeling and OHI Design and many other local business sponsors and donors, this event has raised over $20,000 this year.
