Join us on September 28, 2019 for the PTEF Family Fit Fest, featuring the Coach Hathaway 10k, 5k & 1-Mile Run. This fun community event is open to all ages and ability levels. In addition to the run, enjoy a circuit of fitness activities led by our elementary school PE teachers, a health & community fair, and a 1/4-mile Kiddie Romp with school mascots.
Be a part of our mission to inspire learning, teaching, and community in Perry Township Schools. All you have to do is walk, run, or play! Consider "going the extra mile" by fundraising for the event. We know your school means as much to you as it does to us. Ask your family and friends to support you by making a donation. Top fundraisers will receive prizes and race-day recognition alongside top runners!
This event proudly honors the legacy of longtime Perry Township teacher and track and cross-country coach, Tom Hathaway, who was a mentor to hundreds of runners in the Indianapolis community and who believed that fitness should be fun, community-focused, and accessible to all. Ready to get started?
