Registration is now open on our website - www.marvinrunfortheridge.com. Register early to guarantee your race shirt and goodie bag! Rea View has won the Participation Award for the past three years - last year it was only by 4 runners! Let’s try to keep the streak going!
In order to benefit from this fun community event we need to have at least five race day volunteers from Rea View. The first five volunteers to sign up from each school will receive a free entry to the 5K or Fun Run. Check out the volunteers tab on our website and be sure to like our Facebook page for updates and information.
Please remember this year’s race is dedicated to the memory of a member of our Marvin Ridge family, Jeff Aten.
In December, the first grade classes went on an exciting “journey” around North Carolina as they read the book The Twelve Days of Christmas in North Carolina by Judy Stead.
