The big 5k race is on!



Saturday, March 12 will be another big day for the Marco Island Academy! At 7:30 a.m. all are invited to register to join in the second 5K race. It’s not only a chance to walk or run on beautiful Marco Island, but also an opportunity to meet the Academy’s new principal, Chris Pellant. Anyone who does not choose to do the entire five kilometers will be able to take on a shorter course.

Participants have a sliding scale of entry fees: Kids up to 9 run free, youths from 10-17 pay $20, adults 18 and up pay $25. Tee shirts are $15.

The Academy will have a table set up for collection of new or “gently” used clothing for donation to needy families. That’s in keeping with the Academy’s aim to be an integral part of the Marco Island Community.

The Academy will also be holding an informational meeting at the Marco Island Charter Middle School at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 15. It will be another opportunity to meet Principal Pellant and learn more about this innovative new high school.
