Picture it: a two-legged stoplight runs beside a banana and dog dressed as a Superman. Not far behind are Batman and a pint-sized Ninja Turtle. The sounds of high school marching bands and drum lines fill the air, and cheerleaders line the street.
What’s going on? The Celebrate Schools 5K Monster Mad Dash5K to benefit the Foundation for Edmonds School District.

The Celebrate Schools Monster Mad Dash, now in its 11th year, is organized by the Foundation in partnership with supporting sponsors, the City of Lynnwood and Alderwood Mall. Event proceeds fund Foundation programs focusing on academic enrichment, career and college readiness, and the Nourishing Network.
Teams keep 100 percent of pledges collected for their classroom or school, and district teams of 20 or more receive a portion of the event proceeds. The biggest school team gets a trophy and the top three teams can choose their prizes.
