Saturday’s Fund Run to benefit education foundation

Runners of all ages are invited to join the Noblesville Schools Education Foundation’s second Fund Run Saturday morning. The run features three races: a 10-miler, a 5K and a 1-mile fun run and walk. All races start and finish at Noblesville High School, 18111 Cumberland Rd.

The races are presented by Riverview Hospital and the City of Noblesville. All proceeds benefit the education foundation, which supports the Noblesville Schools district by providing classroom grants for use in every school and scholarships to graduating seniors who plan to pursue a degree in education and teachers who are taking advanced college courses in education.
