Demonstrating their strong WISS spirit and generosity, more than 350 Wissahickon students, parents, staff and community members participated in the first annual WEOF to the Races 5K and Walk/Fun Run on November 15. The event, sponsored by the Wissahickon Educational Opportunities Foundation (WEOF) to support Wissahickon students, included staff and families from every school in the district.

In total, 264 people registered to run the 5K course that wound around the Lower Gwynedd Elementary/WMS/WHS neighborhood and 97 people participated in the walk/fun run around the WHS Stadium track.

“This first annual event was a great success made possible by the support of our Wissahickon school community and area businesses who sponsored the 5K,” said Pat Latimer, Co-President of WEOF. “The money we raised will help enhance educational opportunities for students across the district. Everyone should be proud of their contribution to WEOF to the Races.”

There were many winners of the day. In addition to the students who will benefit from WOEF-funded programs/activities, there were individual race winners in different categories as follows:

  • Overall Male/Female Winner (based on race time): Scott Landis and Lotte Black
  • Under 13:  Brendan Fry and Tess Crossan
  • Ages 13-19: Joshua Jackson and Carly Ukalovic
  • Ages 20-40: Jason White and Shelley Uthgennant
  • Over 40: Tony Parrado and Cheri Quesenberry
  • Wissahickon Employees (M/F): Scott Landis and Shelly Uthgennant

In a WSD School vs. School competition to see which school could recruit the highest staff participation, Central Office, Wissahickon Middle School, and Lower Gwynedd Elementary came in 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. Way to go!

THANKS to OUR SUPPORTERS!

WEOF recognizes and thanks Mr. Jason Bialka, WMS Language Arts teacher, and Bryn Mawr Racing Company for donating and managing the race registration, management and timing services. Mr. Bialka’s expertise in race management was priceless. WEOF also thanks the four WHS students who helped organize WEOF to the Races as part of their graduation project, Fiona Kelly, Becca Hong, Elyse Kauffman and Arielle Goldberg. These students helped with the planning, promotion, solicitation of gifts and participants and race day logistics and organization. The event would not have been possible without their support. Additionally, WEOF thanks the student volunteers from the Key Club and National Honor Society who served as course marshals and helped with registration.

WEOF extends thanks and gratitude to the event sponsors whose contributions will support innovative programs ranging from technology to the arts. Sponsors included:
