RUN4Elise 2022



2022 Run4Elise-- Saturday, May 14, 2022

The Run4Elise is a 5K and 1 Mile fun run that benefits the water safety efforts of the Swim4Elise Foundation and the Elise Cerami Memorial Scholarship.  This family-friendly community event honors the life of Elise Cerami, who fatally drowned at swim practice on June  20, 2016.  From the generous support of the community, the Swim4Elise Foundation is able to provide its outreach education completely FREE to local daycare centers in North Texas.  Click here to read more about Elise, the scholarships, the 100 Lifeguard Challenge, and the daycare community outreach program. We are hopeful to continue to join forces with the City of Southlake who provides additional water safety education and bystander CPR demonstrations during the event. We will also be promoting International Water Safety Day!

The In-Person 2022 Run4Elise will be held at Gateway Church off Blessed Way in Southlake, Texas. The 5K is a USATF certified course around scenic Gateway Church. The 1-mile fun run is great for families and kids in strollers are free. There will be refreshments, handsanitizer, sponsor tables, water safety education and fun for the whole family.
