The United Nations Day Run is a fundraiser for the Russian Immersion Programs at Turnagain Elementary, Romig Middle, and West High schools. This is a fun 5k / 2k run along the coastal trail open to all wishing to celebrate United Nations Day and the cultural and linguistic diversity of the Anchorage School District (ASD).
The United Nations Cup, a traveling trophy, will be awarded to the language immersion program; Chinese, German, Japanese, Russian or Spanish (Anchorage or Chugiak), which has the most finishers on race day! The top three teams get small grants of cash to support their program. Come join us in celebrating United Nations Day and world language instruction in the Anchorage School District!
