BENEFITING: Sandy Springs Education Force Inc
ORGANIZER: Sandy Springs Education Force Inc
EVENT DATE: Nov 12, 2016
I live and work in Sandy Springs and met Irene Schweiger, the Executive Director of Sandy Springs Education Force, through Leadership Sandy Springs. She is amazing and when you are around her and her dedicated group of volunteers at SSEF, it is impossible not to want to get involved and help in their efforts. I urge you to visit SSEF's website at sandyspringseducationforce.org and learn more about the organization and it's amazing programs. I also urge you to run the 5k race on Novmeber 14th (see info below), or if you can't, please help by donating. Any amount is appreciated. Thank you!
