Walkers and runners of all ages helped raise nearly $4,000 in the 2015 Annie B. 2-Miler fun run/walk held in June at Clarks Creek South in Puyallup.

 

Money raised at the annual event benefits homeless and low-income students at the district’s junior high and high schools. It pays for items such as shoes, coats, glasses, sports equipment, and academic fees.

 

The Annie B. 2-Miler fun run/walk was organized in 2010 to honor long-time teacher, counselor, and former district student Annie Boulet, who died unexpectedly in December 2009.

 

The Philanthropic Educational Organization (P.E.O.) in Puyallup helped organize this year’s event, which is sponsored each year by the Kiwanis Club of Daffodil Valley. All donations are managed by InvestED, a foundation which makes the funds available to the Puyallup School District to support junior high and high school students in need.

 

While the event was held at a new location this year at Clarks Creek South, it will return next year to its traditional location at the Sparks Stadium track. Next year’s event is scheduled on June 8, 2016.
