Gray's Creek Middle School is located in Hope Mills, NC.  It is a global school that focuses on and promotes the idea that its students are part of a world much larger than their hometown.  In support of students who are traveling globally, GCMS has started a 5K race as a fundraiser to help with travel costs.  As this race grows, GCMS hopes the number of students experiencing world travel also will grow.  Our goal is that our school and community will become rich with real world travelers, experiences, and knowledge.

Course Description

Race will begin at the back of Gray's Creek Middle School. The course is flat and will start and end at GCMS. Plan to stay after the race for door prizes, snacks, and photos. There will also be a display about students’ upcoming travels and past trips taken.
