For the eighth year, the Hometown Hustle is inviting familes to celebrate fitness — and raise money for the school's foundation.
The annual Hometown Hustle is planned for Saturday, May 11 in Rochester. Last year, 850 kids and adults participated in the event, which starts and ends at the School Administration Building on University Drive.
“The Hometown Hustle raised $22,000 for the Rochester Community Schools Foundation in 2012, allowing the Foundation, which recently awarded $19,000 in grants to Rochester Community Schools initiatives, to increase its grant giving capacity for student scholarships and mini-grants to educators and cultural and athletic programs,” said Debbi Hartman, manager of the foundation.
“This giving is the direct result of the hundreds of community members and civic minded sponsors who support the Hometown Hustle.”
Here's what you need to know to sponsor or take part in the event:
- The cost for the chip-timed race will be $20 for individuals, $50 for families and $10 for K-12 students. Online registration will be open soon.
- Sponsors are needed to make the event happen. There are several sponsorship opportunities available, ranging from $150-$2,000. For details about sponsoring the event, send an email to SHerring@rochester.k12.mi.us or call 248.726.3190
