“It was awesome!!!”

Administrators, students and parents love the success, sense of community, and joy in the program.

Race for Education equips schools to raise considerable funds from sponsors for educational needs through an annual event involving students jogging or walking for just one hour.

The concept of an easily managed, high-impact fundraiser originated in 1984. Jim Cole, a longtime school principal, resolved to find a better way to meet schools' financial challenges without repeated, exhausting fundraisers.

He created Race for Education and continues today to provide client schools with a proven program and personal support to ensure success.
