Roseboro Elementary School held its ‘Cinco de Mayo’ 5K FUNd Run Saturday, May 5. The race began and ended in the Western District Park in Roseboro. Following the race, the community enjoyed the Roseboro Elementary Spring Fling which began at 10 a.m.
This year’s 5K was infused with Cinco de Mayo, a celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. It takes place on May 5, which commemorates the Mexican’s Army’s victory over France in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla.
The event was hosted by Roseboro Elementary’s Team P.R.I.D.E.
Proceeds from the sixth annual event will benefit a after-school health program, that promotes running and physical fitness. Funds will go towards an overnight trip and 5K event in Wilmington. In addition to health, the club for boys and girls involves character development.
