Fun Run

2020 Virtual Fun Run - October 31, 2020

The 2020 Virtual Fun Run was one we will not forget! Nearly 100 students registered for the Fun Run and ran around Farlow Park OR on a course of their choosing in their costumes on a bright, sunny day following a surprise October snowstorm! Participants came together to raise over $7,500 for the Underwood PTO. Thank you to everyone who made this event a success, especially our event chairs, Kate Luethy and Anne-Marie Gravel, Crislin Waldman for dressing up our Underwood owl for the logo, and Ms. Melanson's class for having the highest participation!
