6th Annual Roger’s Run: Edgewater 5k Coming on May 11

Education nonprofit Edgewater Collective is organizing the 6th annua Edgewater 5k with a new name this year, Roger’s Run. In memory of Roger the Elephant of Manhattan Beach fame, Roger’s Run is a 5k race through the beautiful tree-lined streets of Edgewater. The race will be on Saturday, May 11 and starts near Edgewater Elementary School. Proceeds from the race benefit the work of Edgewater Collective in our local schools.

There are opportunities for businesses to sponsor Roger’s Run and help support our local schools. Sponsorships start at $100 so it can be a great opportunity for small businesses to get their name out in the community. This year there will also be race t-shirts which provide a great opportunity for business promotion.

Get Involved in Supporting Schools in Edgewater and Two Creeks

With rising housing costs and rental rates in the 80214 area, our schools are impacted with a loss of enrollment because families can no longer afford to live in the area. Therefore, Edgewater Collective is transitioning to focus on ways to support schools in raising student enrollment. Improving enrollment at our local schools increases the funds schools receive which can provide the right interventions and supports so all kids can succeed.

Join us on Monday, April 1 from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at the Edgewater Civic Center for our Community Board meeting. These meetings are open to the community and we would love to have others join our effort to support Edgewater Elementary, Lumberg Elementary, Molholm Elementary and Jefferson Junior/Senior High School.
