THE STORY:

I know the concept of me and a road race are typically mutually exclusive  - but in this case I am making an exception!

Register for our race on Active by clicking here.

Almost 60% of Sandy Springs public school students are economically disadvantaged. The Sandy Springs Education Force (SSEF) works every day to help our city's schools become world class centers of education. This means that opportunities to succeed in school and in life must be as equally present for our poorest students, as they are for our economically stable kids. SSEF focuses on closing the achievement gap and creating a prepared 21st century workforce by providing award-winning programs that help ALL of our kids graduate from high school and become contributing citizens. 

Come walk with me (note that I said "walk" not "run")! It's only 3 miles. We'll have fun and we'll make a difference at the same time! 

For those of you who are real athletes: this is a Peachtree Qualifier!
