The 2013 Root Run will be held on Saturday, May 11, 2013

Root Run is a fun community event that’s healthy for the whole family. The money raised from the Run is crucial to the learning environment that our children enjoy at Root. The PTO uses this money to provide teachers grants, help pay for literacy aids, playground improvements and much more.
