Tiger Trot raises $1,000 for good cause

Dr. John Hole Elementary School’s second annual Tiger Trot, a 5K/10K run for students, helped raise $1,000, of which was provided to Sue Fouty of the Living Hope Church to help with their donation of lunches to Centerville school children, not only during school hours but also weekends and breaks.

“It’s great that we are able to keep the money in the Centerville area and give back to the community we live in and help our own children,” said Janelle Kime, one of the PTO members and organizers of the Tiger Trot.

The annual race is held in April and the school plans to continue the tradition and provide to another community organization. The PTO and race organizers came together with a common goal to help the community while also providing funds for school organizations. Centerville is a participant in the Girls on the Run program, which inspires young girls to be healthy and joyous by integrating running into their daily lives. To expand that theory, the John Hole PTO wanted to bring the joy of running to not only young girls, but to all.

Last year, Tiger Trot raised $1,000 for Shoes 4 the Shoeless. This is an organization that was co-founded by a parent of a Dr. John Hole student and provides needy children with new shoes.

Even being only in the second year, the race has gained the support of many area supporters and sponsors such as Voss Village Cadillac, Dayton Children’s Medical Center and Speedy-Feet, just to name a few. The school would like to raise awareness of their event and encourage all to come out and help support the cause and show support for the Centerville community.
