On Saturday, April 26, 2014, we will have our 4th Annual Run for the Woods fun run. This year’s fun run will be in honor of one of our students, Meadow Johnson. Her mother is a teacher at Andy Woods. Meadow was diagnosed with Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disorder, and is being treated for a brain tumor. This condition causes tumors to grow anywhere in or on the body along various nerves and can affect the development of non-nervous tissues such as bones & skin. All proceeds from this event will be given to this Andy Wood’s family, the Johnson's, to help with medical expenses as well as travel expenses for Meadow's medical visits.
Registration forms are available by clicking on the documents tab.
Registration on the day of the run will begin at 7:30 am. (Run t-shirts will NOT be available for these registrations) Students and staff of Andy Woods will receive their t-shirts and numbers the week of the run. These items will be sent home through their teachers. Other pre-registered participants may pick up their numbers and t-shirts on Friday, April 25th from 4pm to 6pm on the front sidewalk of Racquet & Jog, on Old Bullard Road at their temporary location, or at 7:30am at the registration tent before the run.
All races will begin and end in front of Andy Woods Elementary. Please click on the links tab to view the map of the races and parking options.

As always, part of our school’s mission is to promote happy, healthy children. Last year, our Run for the WOODS! helped two of our staff members, Coach Ashley Phelps and Mrs. Gloria Torres family. Coach Phelps was severely injured in an automobile accident and Mrs. Torres husband was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Sadly Mr. Torres passed away shortly after the race last year. We thank everyone of you that supported them! The proceeds went to these two Andy Woods families to help with medical expenses.
