Walkers and runners of all ages helped raise nearly $8,000 in the 2014 Annie B. 2-Miler fun run/walk held in June at Spark Stadium.

 

More than 200 people participated in this year’s event, which raised $7,820, said event organizer Cindy VanHulle, health and fitness teacher at Ferrucci Junior High.

 

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.
