Donation Goal: $10,000

New for 2019: We are honoring the memory of Samantha Davis, a senior runner from Union Pines High School who passed away in September 2018 after collapsing at a cross country meet.  A portion of race proceeds and donations will be used in her name for either a scholarship or in another legitimate way after consulting with the school and Samantha's family. 

The ShamRock ‘N Roll Road Race has grown into a successful event raising funds for students and their education in Moore County. Recognizing that teachers have innovative ideas that need funding, we are excited to be able to help educators turn their ideas into realities. Proceeds from the race will be allocated to Moore County School teachers in the form of grants. In conjunction with the Public Education Foundation, teachers may learn more about the process and find applications with the following link: Grant Information & Application
