Cloudy skies didn’t darken the excitement at Griffin Elementary School on Friday.

Parents cheered as students ran during the school’s second annual Gator Dash. The fundraiser will support field trips, playground equipment, family fun nights and books for the all-school read, said Carolyn Bocheff, president of the Griffin Parent-Teacher Association.

Leading up to the event, teachers incorporated different aspects of the run into their classrooms. In addition to student collections, local businesses sponsored the event.

“It’s great to see support from families and businesses,” Bocheff said.
