Runners making a difference for your child's education.

The Shelby County Education Foundation is proud to present the 14th annual "Race for Education."

The excitement is set for November 8, 2014 at Agricenter Farmers Market. Join us for a 5K run/1mile Family Fun Walk. The 5K race will begin promptly at 9:00 A.M. followed by the 1 mile Family Fun Walk shortly thereafter. There will be entertainment, fun and prizes for children of all ages, so be sure to get there early. This is a Memphis Runner's Track Club sanctioned event and medals will be given to the top three runners in each age group as well as overall winners. Early mail-in, online or school turn-in registration is $20.00 until October 29, 2014. After that the registration fee is $25.00. Online registration ends 11/5/14. Walk-up Registration will be available on race day, fee is $25.00. Shirts will be given out while supplies last on the day of the race.

The "Race for Education" was started in 2001 by a group of parents who wanted to help raise much needed funds for programs, such as art, music and physical education that were scheduled to be cut to balance the school's budget. Thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors, proceeds from the registration fees, go directly back to the classroom. The proceeds from registration fees go directly to the school that you designate on your registration form. Each school will decide with the help of principals, parents and teachers, how to best use the funds they receive from the proceeds of the race.
