More than 300 students, staff, family and community members laced up their sneakers to walk or run in the 2nd Annual WEOF to the Races 5K and Fun Walk on November 12th.  It was a sunny and crisp morning for another great event that raised more than $7,000 to support Wissahickon students and schools.

This year, staff, student and community teams were encouraged to register and run together for the chance to win an award for the most participants. Winners in the team categories included Wissahickon Middle School, the boys cross country team and the Glenside running group, Let them Run. Prizes were also awarded to the top overall male and female and the top male and female in four age groups.
