Our Walk for Kids team is geared up for the GEH 5K event on September 27, 2014 to support Friends of Educational Excellence!
Friends of Educational Excellence supports children in Rochester city schools by providing volunteers who tutor students during the school day under the guidance of classroom teachers. Our goal is to provide enough additional support for disadvantaged kids so they can succeed in school and we can move the needle of success for the entire Rochester City School District. In the 2013-2014 school year, we supported 12 elementary schools that had over 500 volunteers. Our GEH PhotoFinish 5K fundraiser will be used to recruit more volunteers to help more students during this school year.
