Posted on June 9, 2015, in Events, Organizations

The first Annual Lancers Sprint to Summer: GM Family Fun Run was a great success. Hosted by Edinboro Elementary Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) and McKean Elementary Parent-Teacher Association (PTA), the event hosted approximately 265 runners on May 23, 2015 at General McLane High School and Middle School grounds.

Obstacle stations were placed throughout the run, which was a 5k/1milerun/walk. A dunk tank, which featured Mr. Getz and Mr. White, and additional entertainment was also available. The event coordinated with the help of Robert Kennerknecht and Lisa Celeski.

“This was a healthy and fun alternative to our traditional fundraising efforts of both schools,” said McKean PTA president Tracy Stanley. “Not only was this the first time this was done, it was the first time both schools worked together in their fundraising efforts.”

More than $1900 was raised for the PTO and PTA at the Elementary schools. Both the PTO and PTA are organizations that promote parent participation. Information for next year’s run will be out around January.
