Community Building Events Fundraising PTA SOMA

And we’re off!

We couldn’t have asked for better weather or a better crowd for our First Annual Seth Boyden 5K and Fun Run! We had over 100 runners registered for the 5K and 50 kids in the fun run. Prizes were awarded to the top male and female runners and for the top runners in each age group — 16 prizes in total.

Every child who participated in the Fun Run received a medal, with top runners in each age group receiving a small trophy.

The crowd was a wonderful blend of Seth Boyden families, teachers, members of the broader Maplewood/South Orange community, and runners from other parts of NJ and even NY!

Each runner and spectator was a winner as we ushered in a fabulous new tradition for our school and community!
