CELEBRATING 10 YEARS!

5k & Kids Dash - October 26th, 2019 - Hutchinson, MN

Saturday October 26th, 2019

Hutchinson, Minnesota

The Spooky Sprint is a 5K family fun run/walk and a 1/2 mile kids dash. Information for both races is presented below.

Pssst….

Can we talk for a sec? It’ll just take a minute.

We just wanted to tell you how excited we are about the 10th Annual Spooky Sprint! You see, in 2010 we had this idea to put together a Halloween fun run for families to encourage wellness and community outreach. Would it work? Would anyone show up? We were very fortunate to have our community support the event both through registrations and sponsorships!

For the past 9 years the event has continued to grow and be a fantastic fundraiser for the REACH program at Hutchinson High School. Below are some numbers from the past 9 years.

What has REACH done with these funds? The program has used the donations to provide scholarships to REACH students to continue their education after high school. More than 29 students have been able to attend post-secondary educational institutions thanks to donations from the Spooky Sprint.

Our goal this year is to raise $15,000 for REACH, almost $2,500 more than we have donated in our highest of previous years.

We’re hoping to make this year’s 10th Annual Spooky Sprint our best ever and we hope that you will be a part of it!

The Benefactors

The REACH Program is a voluntary, supportive intervention of the Hutchinson High School designed to help students who are seeking support academically, socially, and/or emotionally. Class groups ideally consist of 15 to 30 students, working closely with the team of educators and mental health/chemical health support. The REACH Program not only supports these students academically, but also works to help them build the skills necessary to become successful adults after graduation.
