Student Stride for Education
An event to show our support for education in Washougal
The Student Stride for Education is a fun run and 5K run/walk held annually to rally community support for Washougal students. Our 17th year was different. Participants completed the distance as they would have for the live event, indoor or outdoor, and posted their time to encourage others.
The free virtual event took place Sunday, May 10 to Saturday, May 16, 2020.

This is only my second year walking a 5k. This year I just walked the dike in Washougal, but it was still really fun and great exercise!!! – Crystal Reude
Ran my 5k bright and early Sunday morning to show my support. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. – Kelly Anderson
I ran my Stride on the Washougal Dike Trail. I enjoyed the wonderful weather and excellent views. I look forward to next year when we can all run together. I was also scheduled to sing the National Anthem to start off the run… I now have a whole extra year to practice! We are so THANKFUL for the support of the Washougal Schools Foundation. Their work and commitment make a huge difference for our school district. I will see everyone out on the course next year! – Mary Templeton

The last two weeks of March Caleb was at Randall’s Children’s hospital with pneumonia. When he entered the hospital on 3/19, he was only able to breathe using his right lung. After two chest tubes, a central line, being intubated, a feeding tube, two different ventilators and many tests, Caleb was finally able to come home April 2. He had lost weight and was very fragile looking. Our goal was to have him start walking to the mailbox. Slowly he was able to increase his speed and length of walks. We are very proud of his progress! A year ago he ran in his first stride. He’s bummed he couldn’t run it this year, but we are more than thrilled to see him walk this stride! Thanks for giving us a goal to work to with him! Best 5k ever!!! – Grace Perkins
