Join us (VIRTUALLY!) the week of September 25 - October 2, 2021 for the 11th Annual 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. Rather than canceling the event this year, in light of current circumstances, we're going virtual! See below for details.
Be a part of our mission to inspire learning, teaching, and community in Perry Township Schools. All you have to do is walk or run! Consider "going the extra mile" by fundraising for the event. Ask your family and friends to support you by making a donation. Top fundraisers will receive prizes and social media 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.
*Note: The 1-mile walk/run will only be available officially for our elementary students, who will be running in participating schools as part of their PE curriculum. If your child is interested, you can download a paper registration form at www.ptef.org
