Run for the Gold 5K

Fri April 19, 2024 Peachtree City, GA 30269 US Directions


It's time to Run for the Gold!! Grab your family and friends and go for a 1 Mile/5K run/walk with us Friday, April 19, 2024! 

Last year’s fun run, 5k, and family fun night was a huge success! Much of that success came from generous sponsors who contributed to the annual fundraiser. We hope this year’s race and family fun night will be an even bigger success! The race will be held at Oak Grove Elementary School on Friday, April 19. The one-mile fun run will begin at 6:00 pm, followed by the 5k at 6:15. 

Our new annual night time race and family night includes music, food trucks, and more! The success of this event relies heavily on the support of sponsors in the community and friends of Oak Grove, like you. Funds from last year’s race provided subs for our teachers to participate in professional learning, the salaries for our two incredible intervention specialists, Leader in Me opportunities for staff and students, as well as other initiatives that impacted student learning and engagement. We hope to continue those initiatives this year and provide more resources, programs, equipment, and learning opportunities for teachers and students.
