Due to COVID-19 Race for Education will be postponed to next school year in the fall. We appreciate the donations received, which are vital to support our non-profit 501(c)(3) during these difficult economic times. All received donations will be applied to falls race and 5th graders will be receiving a special edition T-shirt, Water Bottle, and Key Chain.
