The first annual Legacy 5K Color Run and Walk will be held May 11 at 8 a.m to raise funds for the LCM Education Foundation. The start and finish will be at Legacy Park, where there will be food provided for participants.

“The planning is intense,” Sherry Combs said. “Since this is the first year and only one of the Board of Directors has ever been in one (a 5k), we had to do a lot of research on what we need to do ahead of time.” 

Sign-up forms are available at the administration building, at any school in our district, or on the Education Foundation Facebook page. Late registration will be available on race day from 7-7:45 a.m., and race packets may be picked up May 10 from 8:30 a.m.-3:30 p.m.

According to Combs, there are several preparations going on in order to get ready for Saturday. The bibs with chips that electronically times each runner have to be secured and sponsors are still signing on to underwrite expenses. She said there also has to be approval from the City of Orange which goes from one department to the other, to make sure there is nothing that would be a possible issue. The Education Foundation has also invited vendors for health-related organizations, Fit Life, an ambulance company, and life flight.

Proceeds from the race are going towards the “Grants-To-Educators” program sponsored by the LCM Education Foundation.

“The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Education Foundation ‘Grants-to-Educators’ Program provides educators the opportunity to develop innovative, instructional projects to expand and/or enhance learning opportunities for the youth of the Little Cypress-Mauriceville CISD,” she said. “The grants are available to fund projects that enrich student learning in all program areas. The purpose of the grants is to provide monies for projects not funded from other sources. The Little Cypress-Mauriceville Education Foundation Awards Committee will select grant recipients. The Committee’s goal is to select grant projects that are consistent with the Foundation’s desire to promote quality education for the students of LCMCISD.”

Participants are encouraged to park across the street at Little Cypress Junior High on race day. 

Adult registration is $30, children under 12 are $20 two children in each family, and each additional child costs $10 each. Children four and under are free and must be accompanied by an adult.
