2020 NEF 5K Run/Walk & Arts Festival

Event Date: March 28, 2020 at O’Connor High School

Event Information

In 2020, the Northside Education Foundation (NEF) will celebrate serving as a passport to the future in education and innovation in NISD for 25 years.

On Saturday, March 28, join thousands of NISD employees, students, families, and community partners at O’Connor High School as they come together to support NEF’s mission of generating more resources for Northside educators and students.  After the race, participants are invited to enjoy the free Los Leones Student Arts Festival with more than 2,500 pieces of high quality artwork.  There will be a variety of food booths, performing artists and demonstrations, Northside history, plus much more for the entire family.

Thank you for registering for the Northside Education Foundation (NEF) 5K & Arts Festival.  NEF and the educators of NISD appreciate your donation used to enrich student learning.

NEF wants to express concern for everyone impacted by COVID-19.  Based on close monitoring of the situation and to adhere to government guidelines on public gatherings, the arts festival has been cancelled and the 5K has been moved to an online virtual race.
