Community Education received a Project Award from the Minnesota Community Education Association (MCEA) for the Centennial Kids Obstacle/Mud Run, a family event which was held Saturday, August 14 at Centennial High School. Together with Endurance Fitness of Lexington and local Scout Troop 415 of Coon Rapids, a creative, safe and fun obstacle course was constructed for children between the ages of 4 and 12. Many additional volunteers came together to make the event a success including the Spring Lake Park, Blaine, Mounds View Fire Department, the Centennial Lions Heart group and many other individuals.
The MCEA Project Award is presented to outstanding projects that have exemplified the concept of Community Education.
The Centennial Kids Obstacle/Mud Run event was recognized because it provided a true collaborative effort of varied organizational groups in the community working together toward one purpose while also providing a great sense of fun for families and a sense of community spirit.
