The 13th annual Hermiston Education Foundation fun run/walk will collect school supplies for local students.

The Back to School Supply Dash is Saturday, Aug. 24 at 9 a.m. at Riverfront Park, 302 S.W. 23rd St., Hermiston. Participants can register at 8 a.m. at Hermiston Church of the Nazarene, 1520 W. Orchard Ave.

The entry fee is a minimum $5 donation, or the equivalent in donated items from the Hermiston School District kindergarten through eighth grade school supply list. A Fleet of Feet Award will be presented for the school receiving the most supplies in its donation box at the race.
