Lodi Physical Therapy and the PUMP Institute, a Lodi strength, performance and weight-loss center, are sponsoring 5K and 10K runs at Lodi Lake on Saturday to raise money for Lodi Unified School District high school sports programs.

The two businesses have raised $60,000 over the last six years with the Lodi Lake run, according to Francisco Magana, one of the event organizers.

The run begins at 9 a.m. and costs $35 to participate. Children under age 10 can run without paying a fee, and will receive a pumpkin from Phillips Farms.

Participants will receive an event T-shirt, pasta dinner on Friday, refreshments, snacks, eligibility for age group awards and a goodie bag.

Proceeds will go to sports programs that were hit by budget cuts at Lodi, Tokay, Bear Creek and McNair high schools, Magana said. They will also help with new equipment for students who couldn't otherwise afford it, he said. For more information, call 209-365-7867.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
