Mid-Coast School Noteboook
BATH — Runners from Hyde School in Bath will set out Nov. 16 on a 196-mile fundraising relay run to Hyde’s sister school in Woodstock, Conn.
Each member of the team will run an estimated total of 20 miles in order to raise $1,000 for the Bath Food Mobile, a program administered by Grace Episcopal Church that offers free food to needy families in the Midcoast area.
A support team will drive runners to checkpoints along the route, where the athletes will rest, eat and keep in touch via social media. The public can track the team's progress by following the #flightofthephoenix hashtag on Twitter.
Money raised by the run will go directly to the Good Shepherd Food Bank to supply the Food Mobile. Donations can be made online through the Hyde web site, or sent directly to the Good Shepherd Food Bank. The run has already received sponsorship from local Bath businesses including Brackett’s Market, Coastal Orthopedics and Now You’re Cooking.
