Mountain Valley Parents Club, the nonprofit parent organization at Plumas Charter School, invites community members to join in the Run Run Rudolph 5K and family fun run Saturday, Dec. 2. Participants will race through the holiday light display at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds as they compete
in the timed 5K, or choose a leisurely pace as they take in the scenery of Chipper’s Wonderland. As they cross the finish line, they can keep an eye out for “a special guest with cheeks like roses and a nose like a cherry,” report organizers.
The event begins at sunset at 4:45 p.m. and finishes at approximately 6:30 p.m. Registration is now open via https://runsignup.com/Race/CA/Quincy/Rudolph5kMVP. Runners can also register onsite the day of the event starting at 3:45 p.m.
The timed 5K race is $25 per person and prizes will be awarded to top finishers. The untimed fun run option costs $15 per person. For either option, children 12 years and under participate for free.
Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit PCS’s Quincy site after-school program and other student activities. Organizers report that the after-school program at PCS not only provides a secure atmosphere for children but also offers a variety of benefits including an after-school snack, homework assistance, educational activities, and access to additional school resources.
The Mountain Valley Parents Club goal is to raise $10,000, which would enable more students to access the after-school program. Individuals or businesses interested in sponsoring the event can visit the sponsorship page on the race website or contact club treasurer Nova Collinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
