The New Haven Schools Foundation Earth Day Celebration took place Saturday, April 21, 2018 at Cesar Chavez Middle School and also utilize the popular Alameda Creek Trail near William Cann Park.

The Earth Day Celebration included science- and health-focused educational activities for students and lots of fun for the whole family.

***UPDATE: 

Many thanks to all who joined us, including our sponsors and volunteers! 

Race results are available here.***

Event highlights:

  • 5K Run along the Alameda Creek Trail, professionally timed.
  • Fitness Challenge with Crossfit OneWorld coaches.
  • Earth Day activities focused on science, the environment, health and fitness. (Free and open to all.)
  • Free goody bag for all registrants
  • Free event t-shirt for all registrants
  • Participant medal for all participants

The annual event is a fundraiser benefiting the students and schools of Union City and South Hayward. The 5K course will include a chip-timed route for runners and a family-friendly walk for those who prefer a slower pace. 2018 will bring an excellent event for fitness-minded people, families with children, and serious athletes.

Crossfit OneWorld will host fitness training activities for adults and a Ninja Warrior-inspired course for children. Coaches will be on hand all day to talk about Crossfit and fitness in general, and there will be scheduled competitive sessions for adult and youth registrants.

Earth Day will be the focus of our science-related fair, featuring activities related to STEM, the environment, recycling, healthcare, and fitness.
