Run for the Arts is a weighted run/walk with timed winners and medals for those winners. It is supported and organized by the LUSD to raise monies for the Arts programs in the LUSD. It occurs in the spring, on a Saturday around Lindo Lake Park in Lakeside. After the race a health fair and district wide performances occur at the park to fill out the rest of the morning. Individuals who wish to race pay a fee to participate. Local businesses support the event with items for raffle or money donations. The raffle is held after the race while local students perform a variety of music, dance and singing acts. All the monies generated by the event are distributed equally between all the schools in the LUSD.
