Fun Run 2023


Thank you to everyone who made our 5th Annual APA District Fun Run a HUGE success!  With more than 2,000 registered runners, we had more participants than we’ve ever had. We set our sights high with the goal of raising $50,000 for the APA Teaching Excellence Fund, and we not only reached out goal, but we surpassed it, breaking our previous fundraising record by raising $65,910! We couldn’t have done it without the help of our students, teachers, staff, sponsors, and volunteers.
