Olive J. Dodge Elementary School and the friends/family of Caryn Hyatt-Suthoff would like to invite you to be a part of the third annual Caring for Caryn's Kids 5K/Skate/1 Mile Fun Run to be held Saturday, January 8, 2017, at the University of South Alabama Intramural Fields. The event supports a scholarship fund created in memory of Mrs. Caryn Hyatt-Suthoff, a first-year kindergarten teacher at Dodge Elementary who lost her battle with cancer on December 12, 2014. The total amount we have been able to raise during our first two years is $4,426.00. We will hold this event until 2027, the year Caryn's Kids graduate high school. The Caryn's Kids Scholarship Fund will help us send one or more of her original kindergarteners to college.
Caring for Caryn's Kids 5K/Skate/1 Mile Fun Run will be a family friendly event to kick off Mardi Gras. Participants will dress up in their favorite Mardi Gras attire and decorate strollers and wagons. Everyone will receive a Tee shirt with sponsor logos to wear throughout the Mardi Gras season.
All proceeds benefitting the Caryn Hyatt Suthoff “Caryn’s Kids Scholarship Fund”
