2021 VVS Dream Run 5K/10K in support of Native American students Verde Valley School will hold the 5th annual Dream Run as a virtual event open to the public on March 20, 2021. The Dream Run is a great opportunity for runners and walkers to celebrate the official first day of spring while supporting Native American students. VVS is a highly ranked international boarding school, located near the Village of Oak Creek in Sedona. Going virtual has allowed people from all over the world to participate in the event. That includes VVS parents and alumni, avid local runners, and anyone advocating for inclusion and diversity within private school education. All proceeds from the event support tuition scholarships for Native American students attending VVS, providing them access to a life changing education. During the pandemic VVS has provided a hybrid of in-person instruction and virtual learning to meet the needs of the students no matter their situation. VVS campus residents can join in the Dream Run campus-based route. Local students and staff will kick off their 5k or 10k at 9AM on March 20.. Everyone is welcome to join the VVS Dream Run “Around the World”! Those joining virtually are encouraged to run anytime on or before the event date. Registrants can show their support by wearing the Dream Run race bib wherever they are. They may even choose to listen to the special Spotify playlist called VVS Dream Run, filled with music from artists who have shown their support for the VVS Native American Scholarship. After completing a 5k or 10k, participants can post their own race times to the VVS Dream Run webpage and see photos and social media from other participants around the world.
