WAYNE – An elementary booster organization held their Sixth annual Fun Run last month and recently released the amount of money raised.

According to a release from Wayne Elementary Boosters, WEB held the Fun Run for elementary students on September 17 at Kern Track (high school track).

The event raised over $8,000 and broke all records in its six-year history. These funds will be used to invest in the school by purchasing supplies and books, hosting experiences, showing staff appreciation and more. During the Fun Run, 231 students raised $8,100.
