Virtual 5K to raise money for Performing Arts

SWARTZ CREEK — The Swartz Creek Performing Arts Boosters is sponsoring a virtual 5K to raise money for the Swartz Creek drama and choir programs this school year.

Participants may walk, run, bike or even dance at a time and place of their choosing.

A $20 registration fee gets registrants a red T-shirt with the words “Swartz Creek Performing Arts 5K ‘You Can’t Stop the Beat’” on the front.

To register, go to www.customink.com/fundraising and type “Swartz Creek Performing Arts” in the search bar, then click on the link. There is also an option to make a donation.

Post photos of your 5K on social media using the hashtag #SCPA5K2020.

The Performing Arts Boosters took a big hit this year when the weather and COVID-19 caused the cancelation of most of the group’s major fundraisers.

The Boosters raise money to purchase items such as choir risers and microphones, and to help pay for transportation to the Michigan Thespian Festival and food for the actors and singers during events.
