Spring-Ford Superintendent Dr. David Goodin didnít make it across the finish line of the Spring-Ford Educational Foundation 5K Run/Walk and Kid Fun Run April 11 in time to win his bet with Assistant Superintendent Dr. Allyn Roche. He finished shortly after Dr. Rocheís 7-year-old son, Cooper, in the 5K run.

Previous to the run, Dr. Goodin and Dr. Roche had made a friendly bet before the school board and community that if Dr. Goodin won the race, Dr. Roche would shave his head. However, on the flip side, if Dr. Rocheís son won the race, Dr. Goodin would spend a day working in a trophy case at the high school.

Well, even if it was all in fun, Dr. Goodin held up his end of the agreement and spent the day in one of the high school trophy cases Thursday from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The proceeds from the 5K Run/Walk went towards the annual ďSenior Impact AwardsĒ ceremony held April 30, which honors individuals nominated by graduating seniors who have been instrumental in making an impact on their educational experience. The 5K raised a total of $8,000, drawing a crowd of 313 participants.

These resources are used in a generally charitable way to enhance the quality of the School District and the community.
