|All Children’s Partners with Pinellas Schools To Celebrate Centennial|
All Children's Hospital is a community sponsor of the Pinellas County Schools Centennial Celebration. The year-long celebration will kick off with a "Hands Across Pinellas" event, Saturday, Sept. 24, from 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m. along the Pinellas Trail. All Children's family and members of the community are invited to cheer on the Centennial runners and enjoy some ice cream.
More than 20 high school cross-country runners will cover the Pinellas Trail from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg, carrying the "flame of knowledge" torch in Olympic style. Starting at both ends of the Trail (Sweetbay Supermarket and Gibbs High sites), a runner and a bicyclist will carry the torch for approximately four miles then pass it on to the next runner and cyclist until the last runner and cyclist reach Taylor Park, the mid-point site. The main event will take place at Taylor Park around noon with the presentation of Centennial medals to the 20 cross-country runners.
