The mission of Sandy Spring Education Force (SSEF) is creating opportunities that educate, inspire and prepare Sandy Springs public school students for a competitive world.
The proceeds of this Road Race support SSEF literacy programs and events. After-race festivities will be held on the City Green space and will include a Storybook Character Parade, guest appearances by beloved characters, children's authors and illustrators, are and crafts and much more!
Proceeds further enable the following initiatives:
Enables hundreds of middle and high school students to engage in purposeful after-school programs where they receive academic guidance and join extracurricular activities that keep them in school.
Provides hundreds of elementary school students thousands of books to own and take home - some for the first time - and to have Reading Buddies to teach them the love of reading.
Allow almost two thousand students to experience a STEAM Showcase and underwrites after-school STEAM clubs and programs in all eleven schools, consistently exposing hundreds of students to 21st century careers and fields of study.
Gives one hundred students, who have no means for higher education, extra college guidance, financial access for college applications and the opportunity for campus tours.
Proceeds fund current and future programs to enable us to achieve our mission.
