The Hyattsville Elementary School PTA is starting up a 5K race to be held in Hyattsville next fall. This community wide event will showcase our great city and provide a fun, local, family friendly event for our neighborhood. Proceeds will go to the HES PTA to support the students and teachers at HES.

All are invited to attend a kick off meeting on Wednesday, November 18, at 7:00 pm at HES. We will discuss the current status of race planning, what is coming up next, and volunteer positions.

To make this a success, we need volunteers! You do not need to be a runner or an HES family to be a part of this event! There are many different kinds of work to do, with varying commitments of time needed. We will be asking for help with:running_kids_3
