QISS First Ever Halloween 5K fun-run


This year, QISS has a brand new event that is open to not only QISS students and parents, but also their guests and friends. On October 30th we will be holding our first ever Halloween 5K fun-run. In this event, participants will come to QISS dressed in their Halloween costumes, walk or run a 5 kilometer race, and then enjoy a BBQ lunch. We encourage all QISS families to get involved and to invite their friends to also participate. The cost is 100RMB per race participant. If parents want to race, they also pay 100RMB, but if they just want to watch, they do not have to pay. The fee includes a t-shirt, the BBQ lunch and a finisher’s item. The other proceeds will be donated to the QISS PTA. For more information please contact Mr. Krakowski at mkrakowski@qiss.org.cn
