ROARathon

Dear Lakeway Christian Schools Families,

I would like to take this opportunity to inform you about an important upcoming fundraising event for LCS.  On Saturday, April 27, we will be having our ROARathon Lions 5k and Warriors Fun Run in White Pine.  

The original 5k, known as the Warathon, began in 2009 as an idea from our high school students.  It was first held in Morristown, and then later moved to White Pine where it is now a USATF certified course.  We are excited to incorporate mascots of both schools into the name of the race this year.  Each year students, staff, parents, other family members, and runners from around the area come to participate in an event that is considered a blessing to the White Pine community.  It is always a time of fun and fellowship!

I would like to invite you to be a part of this year's race.  One way to participate is through a sponsorship.  There are several levels of sponsorship to consider.  They range from the top level of $3,000 down to $250.  The monies raised from these sponsorships, as well as monies raised from runner registrations, t-shirt sales, and any monetary donations goes to the financial aid fund.  This fund provides many families with the blessing of being able to have their child or children attend one of our LCS schools.  This event has been able to provide several thousand dollars toward scholarships due to the generosity of sponsors and others.

A second way to participate is through prize donations for runners' prizes.  Several businesses around the community donate different items such as gift cards or coupons to their place of business.  All donations are greatly appreciated.

A third way to participate is through volunteering.  There are several different areas to help.  If you are interested in volunteering, you can contact Kristine Cotton at 865-696-6743.  I will be having a Volunteer Meeting on Friday, March 22 at 8:00 am.

 If you are interested in being a sponsor or if you have any questions, please contact me at 865-387-2000 or by email at lynjenkins3@gmail.com.  You can go to our website at www.lcstn.com and click on the “Giving” button to go to the sponsorship page which has the different levels of sponsorship.  The deadline for sponsorships and sponsorship ad registration is Friday, April 12.

All registrations of sponsorship runners, 5k runners, and Fun Run runners MUST be completed ONLINE by April 12 via the website (click “Giving”).  The Warriors Fun Run is a one mile run/walk that any age can enjoy.  Students under age 12 must be accompanied by an adult.  It is free, and those students who wish to get a free t-shirt may do so with at least $20 in pledged sponsor monies.  Again, anyone who wishes to participate in the Warriors Fun Run MUST register ONLINE.  A handout with general info on the ROARathon Lions 5k and Warriors Fun Run event and the individual Warriors Fun Run pledge sponsor form will be sent home.  Those forms along with the Sponsorship form will also be attached to the Eweekly.

I hope you and your family will join us this year and be a part of the ROARathon Lions 5k and Warriors Fun Run!  Whatever the weather, I know it will be a wonderful time of fellowship and an opportunity to enjoy an event that benefits the lives of children for years to come!

Thank you and God bless!
Lyn Jenkins, Race Director
