Denison ISD 5K For Kindness

Regretfully, we are having to cancel the 5K for Kindness due to lightning We will have inflatables in the Indoor Athletic Facility for our students to  enjoy.

Come on out for a fun morning! Thank you!

Join us for a day of fun!

On Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 8:30 a.m.,

hundreds of excited runners and walkers will once again gather at Denison High School for

DISD’s 3rd Annual 5K for Kindness and 1 Mile Fun Run.

 

The goal, as always, is to create and grow a culture of kindness, compassion, civility and respect throughout our schools and community, while also encouraging and promoting good mental and physical health habits to improve the lives

of ALL our Denison people.

Denison has ALWAYS been unique in its eagerness to stand up for what is right and good; we think all of us agree that more kindness in today’s world is definitely worth standing up for!

2019 5K for Kindness Information

Early race packets may be picked up Friday, April 12 at the concession stand by the baseball field from 4:00pm to 7:00pm.

Parking Notice

We are respectfully asking all Denison ISD Personnel and Event Volunteers who will be involved in the DISD 5K for Kindness to park in the following areas:

DHS Faculty Parking (Directly in front of the DHS Main Entrance) or DHS Gym/Theater/Tennis Parking (Directly behind the school)

 

Due to an athletic construction project, there are a limited number of parking spaces in the parking lot nearest the starting line.  That is the parking lot that is just west of the Indoor Athletic Facility. 

 

Our small gesture of parking farther away so that our guests may park closer is a display of kindness.  Thank you, in advance, for your cooperation!  It’s great to be a Yellowjacket!

Be a part of something special!

Beginning in 2019, the 5K for Kindness will serve to remember our beloved Rachel Ramer, Scott Middle School Algebra Teacher, who so bravely battled leukemia for the past 3 years.  A portion of the proceeds will be used to establish an endowed scholarship in Rachel’s memory.  Profits will also be donated to the Denison Education Foundation & the Boys and Girls Club of Denison.

Please take a moment to view the video below that highlights the life of Rachel Ramer through the thoughts and memories shared by some of her former students. Special thanks to Denison HS senior Gracie Gardner for her outstanding production of this video.
