BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE KING OPEN SCHOOL INC
The King Open School in Cambridge, MA is just what you'd want to see in an urban public school. It's vibrant, diverse, messy, joyful, and very committed to Martin Luther King's ideals of peace and social justice. Like many other urban public schools, there is never enough funding to support the innovative, project-based learning that makes King Open stand apart. Last year, a group of King Open parents partnered with Friends of King Open (FOKO*) and launched FOKOruns, a unique fundraising opportunity designed to build community, and increase much-needed resources for our teachers so that they can continue to promote excellence and equity for all King Open learners. The FOKOruns team will once again join the Ragnar Cape Relay in a 2-day relay running event, stretching out over 190 miles of Cape Cod, from Nantasket Beach all the way to Provincetown. On May 12-13, our team of 14 King Open parents will knock ourselves out, running day and night to reach the finish line. Won't you give us your support?
*Friends of King Open (FOKO) is a parent-run 501c3 non-profit group.
