Why:: We have great public schools in Sandy Springs in which all students can succeed. However, there are a significant number of economically disadvantaged students in our schools who need some extra help --maybe a helping hand- so that they can graduate and pursue a productive life. SSEF provides targeted supplemental programs, including reading, after school and mentoring programs for these children. As Executive Director of SSEF for the past six years, I know that everyday we make a difference in the life of a student. Together, we can break the circle of poverty that affects thousands of children living in Sandy Springs. .
Come join the fun and find out more about how YOU can make a difference. Whether you’re setting a personal competitive record in our 5K Peachtree Road Race qualifier or walking with your children in our 1K Fun Run, Footprints for the Future will be your opportunity to join SSEF’s community and supporters for a great morning supporting an important cause. Stay with us after the race and fun run to enjoy Sandy Springs students in action, to meet SSEF’s business partners who are making a difference in our community, and to celebrate the day!
