Chase the Antelopes

     You are invited to attend Avonworth’s first annual Chase the Antelopes 5k Run and One Mile Walk on April 29 at 9:00 a.m. The 8th grade class at Avonworth Middle School has planned this race in order to bring the community together. The students have been responsible for every aspect of this race. From designing shirts and awards, to promoting the event, to creating registration posters, securing sponsorships from local companies, and keeping track of each group’s progress. Through this project the 8th grade is learning to develop teamwork, communication, marketing skills, and being an engaged citizen within their neighborhood and community.
      The students also have elected to send all proceeds from the event directly to the Hannah Milbert Memorial Fund. Hannah Milbert attended Avonworth High School, and tragically lost her life in a house fire in January. As a community, we hope this event will show the support we have for the Milbert Family.
