Musical: Thoroughly Modern Millie

Set in the roaring 1920's, small-town girl Millie Dillmount has just arrived in New York City, ready to make her dreams come true.

Chasing the Sun, Virtual Heidi Run

Virtual Fun Run in memory of Heidi Greenwood, Rocklin High student and cross county runner.

The proceeds of this run benefit Rocklin/Whitney High School Cross-Country Scholarships.

Congratulations to Eric Leverenz the 2015 WHS recipient !
What does a Virtual Heidi Run mean? It means that those near and far will be able to participate in honoring Heidi and supporting the scholarship fund as well as other causes Heidi would support. 

How does the Virtual Run work? You’ll have the opportunity to order an awesome race t-shirt, with all of the proceeds still going to the high school cross-country scholarships in Rocklin, plus any extra funds being donated to a charitable cause that we’ll choose in Heidi’s honor.

Then during the month of March (in honor of her birthday), put on your t-shirt and get out and run (or walk)! Invite friends and family to join you and support the fundraiser and make it a party. Share how many miles you log and send us photos so we can fill social media with “Heidi love”, especially during the week of her birthday (March 2).

Whitney and Rocklin High schools will be running on March 2nd, Heidi’s birthday.  Participants willmeet at the Track at Whitney/Rocklin High at 3:15pm and run one mile together.  If you cant got out and run on the second of March you can still do your own run when you feel inspired to do so and donate to the scholarship fund by purchasing a shirt. 
Visit this link to order a t-shirt and support the scholarship. 
For more information please visit heidirun.com.
