Time: 8:30 AM - 11:30 AM CDT
Event Description:

Baker students, families, faculty, staff, and friends come together each spring to celebrate physical fitness and community spirit at the Baker 5K, a cooperative run completed by all students in grades 1-8.

Reflecting Baker’s commitment to daily physical education as an integral part of child-centered learning, the 5K was created in 2004 to provide a healthy challenge for students to become stronger mentally and physically. It is the culmination of Sneaker Week, a week of specialized P.E. classes featuring guest instructors and new sports.

The event takes place at Wilmette’s Gillson Park, featuring students and teachers arrayed in a rainbow of brightly colored T-shirts identifying each grade group. Faculty, staff, and parents coordinate the event, run the course with the children, and cheer them on.

The 5K is not a competition, but a key part of Baker’s goal of instilling in students a lifelong commitment to physical health and fitness. Students run with, not against, each other.
