Why should you join me for Footprints for the Future?
Proceeds from the 2nd Annual Footprints for the Future will benefit the Sandy Springs Education Force (SSEF), Sandy Springs, Georgia’s leading education-focused non-profit organization.
This 5K is a Peachtree Road Race Qualifier! Please join me to run or walk -- a morning of great fun for a vital cause, folks!
Here's a surprising, distressing fact: In our affluent city almost 60% of public school students are economically disadvantaged. At SSEF we believe 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. Sometimes it takes just one opportunity to change a student’s life. So SSEF is working to erase the "opportunity gap", close the achievement gap, and prepare ALL of our public school kids to graduate from high school and become contributing citizens in the 21st century workforce, by providing award-winning education and enrichment programs in our public schools.
To learn more about SSEF's work, see our "footprint" data below and visit our website at http://www.sandyspringseducationforce.org.
Can't be there on race day? Sponsor a student who otherwise would not be able to afford to participate in Footprints for the Future. Or just make a donation to support SSEF’s current programs and grow our footprint for next year.
Thank you, everyone! See you soon!
