Walkers and runners of all ages will raise money on June 2 during the 2014 Annie B. 2-Miler fun run/walk at Sparks Stadium.

 

The annual event is from 3 to 6 p.m. at Sparks Stadium, 601 7th Ave. S.W. in Puyallup. Registration will be taken at the gate on event day, and the first 150 registered will receive a free T-shirt. Cost to participate is $20 per adult and $10 per student.

 

Walkers and runners have separate lanes during this non-timed event, and the facility is wheelchair and stroller accessible. For the safety of all participants, no dogs, skates, or bikes are allowed on the track.

 

Money raised goes to InvestED, a foundation which makes the money available to the Puyallup School District to support the needs of homeless and low-income junior high and high school students. The funds pay 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 event is sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Daffodil Valley in partnership with Ferrucci Junior High and the Puyallup School District.
