This year, STS-New Mexico is sponsoring the inaugural “Stuff the Bus Family Fun Day.” The event is held in partnership with the annual Bravo Mic Communications “Stuff the Bus” school supply collection effort held each year in July and August. Many community partners are working in collaboration with Las Cruces Public Schools to raise funds and collect school supplies for students in the district.

The “Stuff the Bus Family Fun Day” will be held from 8:00 a.m.- 11:00 a.m., Saturday, July 20, at the Field of Dreams.

There will be a family bike ride, healthy kid-fit area that will feature a bike rodeo, gymnastics demonstrations, kid clubs, and health and wellness booths for kids.

People will also get an opportunity to experience what it is like to drive a school bus.

There will also be food trucks, a live radio broadcast, 5k road race, 1-mile fun run and a family 1-mile walk.
