💀 We are hopeful that we can open up the bathrooms; that will all depend on the weather and if the city has to winterize before then 🤞

💀 This event is a fundraiser with proceeds going to the Philip Scotties Booster Club and specifically for track and field. We are a group of parents that would like to see Philip get an actual track some day...gotta start somewhere!
We hope to make this an annual event and would love to see it expanded next year to include a Trunk or Treat!
