Race for Education will take place in Spring 2012. Last year, over 200
people participated in the 7th annual Race for Education, which promotes
a healthy lifestyle and exercise in a community-based atmosphere.

local schools in the district the opportunity to generate funds for
their own programs, clubs, sports and other extra-curricular activities.

critical areas, such as basic school supplies and materials, technology,
the arts and more.
