5K event to benefit Faith Learning Preschool Academy

On your mark, get set, go. 


The time is near to grab your favorite super hero costume and your walking or running shoes, as the Faith Learning Academy 5K Run/Walk and kids fun run event is rapidly approaching. 


The event, which will be held Oct. 1 at Greencastle Presbyterian Church, 653 South Country Road 100 East, will begin at 9 a.m. with participants dressed as their favorite superheroes. 


And for Tonya Donaldson, owner of the Faith Learning Academy Preschool, this marks the fourth 5k event that she will have sponsored with Faith Learning Academy after moving to Putnam County from Vincennes in August. 


"The costume idea came with being close to Halloween, as well as a fun idea for the kids and adults too. I’ve done different themed runs in the past but this is the first superhero," Donaldson told The Putnam County Post. 


Funds raised will go to help the Faith Learning Academy, which is new to the county and helps students prepare for kindergarten while operating as a not for profit preschool ministry. 


"The funds from this race will go towards a tuition assistance program for families needing assistance as well as special events for the current class this year," Donaldson said. 


Awards will be given to overall male and female winners, along with age group winners. T-shirts are available on race day as a first come, first served basis. The price is $25 for the 5k run/walk and $15 for the kids fun run, which is open to children ages 10 and under.


The deadline to register is Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. and those interested in participating can register at
