King’s students to host ‘Costume 2K Run’

Oct 24, 2013

King’s High School students will host the “Costume 2K Run,” a fun run for costumed participants, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 26.

The first-year event will include a race through the 55-acre CRISTA campus in Shoreline (19303 Fremont Ave. North) as well as a bouncy house, barista stand, raffle and costume contest.

The King’s Costume 2K Run was created by King’s High School students Emma Rasmussen and Emily Cline, both juniors, and event production will take place with the help of about 40 other King’s High School students.

“Emily and I feel compelled to give back to our community by creating an event that would be fun and motivating for our fellow students, their families and the community,” said Rasmussen.

“We’re looking forward to hosting a fun event for families, and proceeds will be going to a great cause.”

Registration is $10 per participant, with proceeds benefiting the food and fitness program at Seattle Urban Academy, a high school in Seattle’s Central District that specializes in transforming youth at risk into young adults with hope. Like King’s, Seattle Urban Academy is a member of the CRISTA family of ministries.

Participants can register in advance at www.kingsschools.org/2Krun or onsite the day of the event. Event parking will be available at King’s Elementary School across from the CRISTA campus.
