2017 Bolt for the Blue
5K/1-Mile Fun Run & Health Fair
Ligon Magnet Middle School

Race Starts/Finishes on Haywood Street

Sunday, April 30, 2017

Ligon Magnet Middle School’s Bolt for the Blue 5K/1 Mile Fun Run is a fun road race and PTA fundraiser open to the entire Raleigh Community!  A Community Health Fair highlighting healthy food, information and fun activities for all will be held before, during and after the race. With the goal of creating a healthy community through exercise, this year’s event will not only help families work up a sweat together it will also raise funds to support Ligon’s Backpack Buddies Program (a partnership with the Interfaith Food Shuttle), providing much needed weekend food support to food-insecure Ligon students.

This IS a timed race, but feel free to enjoy the course at your own pace – run, walk, jog, skip, dance — the point is to get outside and MOVE and have a great time. We will be having fun raising money for Ligon while building community and showing our children the importance of exercise. Come and be a part of this experience!

Registered students, teachers & staff will automatically be entered into a weekly drawing for great raffle prizes.
