The Elysian Heights 5K Run for Fun is stretching it's legs for the new school year. Elysian Heights Elementary School is a wonderful little school located in Echo Park, CA. it only has about 280 students mainly coming from low income families. Yet, these bright little students are eager to learn. Because of how small the school is, funding is very limited from the state and district, so we want to run for the funds. We know you value education and understand the challenges many public schools face, we hope you can support our efforts in raising the standards of education and health awareness for our children.
