FAHS Hosts 5K for AJ

Posted on May 11, 2015 by


Fleetwood Area High School is hosting the “5k for A.J.”  Participants run three miles and then walk one mile to cool off. This fundraiser is for Aidan Sandor.

“I think it’s awesome that we are able to raise money for Aidan and help him be able to afford everything he needs,” sophomore Charlie Wildermuth said.

The date of this event is 16 May 2015. The race starts at 9:00 a.m. Participants can register an hour before the race to participate.

“It’s a good cause, and I hope it is a great success,” junior Lizzie Geesey said.

Participants can register online any time at Active.com, and the key word is “A.J.,” or there is a link at 111.ajfund.org. If you have any questions, you can contact them at ajfund@verizon.net.

“It’s a good idea to bring awareness and see the community help out,” math teacher Ronald Flicker said.

A part of the money being raised goes into a trust fund for Aidan to help out with any expenses in the future. Another part goes towards helping find a cure for muscular dystrophy.

“It’s the awareness in the disease itself that the family focuses on more,” guidance counselor Anne Marie Neubert said.

Since Aidan is a freshman, this is his first year doing this race, but this event has been going on for four years.  The event usually happens in September, but because it’s happening at Fleetwood, it’s being held in May.
