Perfect conditions brought out 1,458 registrants for the Takoma Park Safe Routes to School 5K Challenge (TKPK5K) on Sunday, May 7. The 5K race had a record 1,030 runners, and raised almost $5,000 for PTA safety activities at the five local schools that participate in the Safe Routes to School program: Takoma Park Elementary, Piney Branch Elementary, East Silver Spring Elementary, Rolling Terrace Elementary, and Takoma Park Middle School.  Next year will mark the 10th Anniversary of the TKPK5K, so save the date now: Sunday, May 6, 2018!
