The 6th annual Conquer the Hill 5K Run/Walk will take place on Saturday, April 22, beginning at 8:30 a.m. The event is sponsored by Beacon Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine and presented by the Indian Hill School District Wellness Committee and the Indian Hill Public Schools Foundation.
This year’s theme celebrates Super Heroes in our community. All are welcome to dress as a favorite super hero, be it a favorite world-saving character or a real super hero who can be whoever inspires you to be your best self. “Inspiring teachers, mentors, parents or grandparents can all be Super Heroes in our lives. Let’s conquer the hill in their honor,” says Lori Klinedinst, IH Foundation Executive Director.
“Don’t be afraid of your fitness goals! Celebrate your achievement whether you run, walk, or push a double stroller over the finish line,” adds IHHS physical education instructor Ellen Hughes. For very young children, strollers are welcome in the 5K. At last year’s event many teachers and staff brought their families to join school families and community members. The finish line celebration is a great party with refreshments, product samples and live entertainment from LoopManDan, IH Alumnus Dan Marshall on guitar and vocals.
