Elaine Gordon has been the inspiration behind seven years of a series of Fun Run celebrations at the Westminster Schools. An athlete and a firm believer in the benefits of exercise for students and adults, Elaine works tirelessly to inspire the community to get out and run during these events. A rainbow array of free T-shirts have marked past Fun Runs. Students wear their shirts proudly throughout the year. Many parents and staff members contribute to the success of our Fun Run tradition, now officially organized by parent, Stacie Illingworth. There are ‘toe rings’ awarded to all runners each time they complete a quarter mile circuit (which includes our school garden). Even the Kindergarteners can be heard adding quarter miles to come up with the mile or two they’ve run! Brave trail runners are allowed to cross our neighboring property and do a 2.5 mile circuit in nearby Evan’s Woods.
