The SOS 5K run/walk, 1Mile fun run and family event will benefit the junior high sports programs in the Utica Community Schools (UCS).
All school districts are experiencing challenging times in addressing funding issues, causing the UCS junior high sports programs to be at risk . Committed parents, educators, community members and students stepped up to the challenge to preserve the football, cheerleading, track and boys and girls basketball programs at all seven UCS junior high schools.
This 5K and family event is an opportunity to show your support for the children in the Utica Community Schools and the Sterling Heights Parks and Recreation program. Funding Junior High sports will benefit our students at all levels, as we work to preserve future sports opportunities for current elementary age students and maintain a sports program to feed and maintain superior sports rankings at the high school level.
The third annual 5K run/walk , 1Mile fun run and family event will be held Saturday, May 31st at Dodge Park located at 40620 Utica Road in Sterling Heights. Join us as a sponsor, walker or competitive runner or just bring your family for some food and fun.
