Boones Ferry Primary School is one of nine outstanding primary schools in the West Linn-Wilsonville School District. Built in 2001, Boones Ferry is surrounded by pristine wetlands that contribute to its beauty and lend a sense of identity to the school. Our mascot is the dragonfly, an intriguing creature common in the wetlands and one that sparks the imagination of our students.

Promo Code: REASON25

Reason to Run (www.ReasontoRun.com) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that exists to create a culture of hope, connection, and community. This is accomplished through a multifaceted training program designed to encourage and support both new and experienced runners. This program has been implemented at Coffee Creek Correctional Facility (CCCF) in Wilsonville, Oregon.

 

Since starting in 2015, over 900 inmates have trained in the program and more than 260 post-release run care packages (running shoes, bra, socks, etc.) have been provided to women who are taking this practical training and implementing it into their life rhythms after ending their time at CCCF. 

While the primary focus of the running program is physical fitness, participants are encouraged to explore how running positively impacts mental health, goal setting and accountability. All participants are encouraged to support and assist other group members to reach their goals.

Your donation provides training materials, running shoes and covers mailing costs for the run care packages.
