Pumpkin Run extended to Nov. 7

The deadline to participate in the Virtual Pumpkin Run has been extended to Saturday, Nov. 7. It looks like we’re going to have some nice weather later in the week, so we hope more students will be able to get outside and join the fun!

The Menands School community is invited to join the 2020 Virtual Pumpkin Run!

So, what does a Virtual Pumpkin Run entail?

Students can choose a time and place for their “run,” which can be walked, jogged or run. It can take place on a road, trail, track or treadmill – wherever is most comfortable – with a specific distance or time they’d like to accomplish. Students are encouraged to participate with family members in their household only and remain socially distanced from others around the community.

Participants are invited to share photos from their run to yearbook@menands.org and fill out a Google form confirming their participation in the event.

Prizes will be awarded to two students in each grade level:

  • Most minutes walked or run
  • Best costume (picture required)

Each student participating will also receive a participation ribbon from the Menands PTA.
