The JUST THINK FIRST 5K Road Race, held each year in the fall, is the major fundraiser for the Just Think First Program. The event helps fund teaching videos that tell the story of something that happened to real students who attended school at Wakefield High. Besides funding for the video projects, proceeds from the 5K race also pay for speakers and various activities planned during the school year to help encourage students to make the right choices. Scholarships are awarded to graduating seniors in the spring.This year's JUST THINK FIRST Road Race starts and finishes at Wakefield HS on Thanksgiving Day.

The event will utilize RFID timing with a disposable tag attached to the back of each bib. We use this same system when timing Running Events including the Tobacco Road Marathon, and RDC Marathon.
