Come together with your friends and family (or fellow alumni!) and run, skip, jog or stroll through the 2nd Annual School Spirit Run powered by Delta Dental at SeaWorld Orlando on Saturday, February 4, 2023! Participants can enjoy the sights, sounds and everything SeaWorld has to offer as you're traveling around the park’s picturesque pathways and right through the iconic Sesame Street neighborhood.   The course is approximately 3 miles in distance!

This event is sure to be a hit with the whole family: we're even featuring a FREE Kids Fun Run for participants ages 7 and under following the Fun Run!  

This event celebrates our community’s schools and all things “school spirit”: the rivalries, the memories, and the experiences that add joy to our lives, not to mention the teachers, coaches, mentors and others who help our children grow and thrive. Proceeds from the run benefit the Foundation for Orange County Public Schools, whose mission is to identify, develop, and focus community involvement and investment to lead our students to success. For more information on the Foundation, please visit www.foundationforocps.org.
