Post Race Fun

Stay after the 5K and test your knowledge of trivia about Italy and France.  Students from Gray's Creek Middle School who are traveling to this country this summer have created questions to ask race participants.  Prizes awarded for correct answers.

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.
