Bullis Gives Back

3rd annual 5k run/2.5k walk raises $23,000 for Stepping Stones Shelter

Almost 350 runners and walkers turned out on May 15 for the 3rd annual Bullis Gives Back 5k Run/2.5k Walk to benefit Stepping Stones Shelter. The event doubled its success from last year, raising $23,000 for the shelter and an additional $3,000 for the Bullis Arts program.

Carson from MIX 107.3FM and Julie Wright from Fox 5 served as emcees for the event, which also featured a fun run and games for young children, sponsored by the Bullis National Honor Society.

Event co-chairs and Bullis parents Nikki DePandi, Debbie Friedlander and Roz Tavel lead a volunteer corps of 40 parents, students and friends to produce the event. Plans are already underway for next year's event, Sunday, May 20, 2012. Mark your calendars!
