The Lebanon Community School District held a No Limits fundraiser May 12.

Three-on-three basketball, which had 64 participants, kicked off the event, which ran from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Lebanon High School housed competitions throughout the day including a 5-kilometer run. About 40 people ran the 5K.

An art show featuring pieces from elementary through high school students lined the commons, giving people something to do between activities.

College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific Northwest students were there with tips for good health. They had samples of black bean and corn salsa, bicycle helmets for safety and toothbrushes donated by Kirkpatrick Family Dentistry.

Outside, there was a car show that brought in 49 participants, including Lebanon’s Rollin’ Oldies.

“Rollin’ Oldies are going to be the grand marshals in the strawberry parade,” said member Jean Garrett. “People might be getting tired of seeing old cars,” she added with a laugh.

About 90 district employees and foundation members volunteered for the event. About 69 students from the honor society helped out as part of a group project.

The event raised $2,000 which will be used for classroom innovation grants and students in need.
