What We Are About: Organizations throughout our community are coming together to support the Rochester City School District teachers and students. This 5K Run/Walk is going to be held on Sunday, June 10th, 2018 at Durand Eastman Park. This event is hosted by ROC City Values, a non-for-profit organization dedicated to strengthening core values in our Rochester kids and their families through collaborations with businesses, organizations and schools. This will ultimately benefit our communities throughout the City of Rochester. 

First Five Years:  In our first year, 2014, thanks to the 500+ participants, we were able to give out almost $8,000 in gift cards for RCSD teachers to purchase school supplies with! In 2015, with the help of several local business sponsors, incredible donators and participants, the event raised over $13,000 and had well over 500 participants once again. In year three, four, and five we raised close to $20,000 each year! This was in large part due to the continued support of Excellus BlueCross BlueShield, McGraw-Hill Education, Wegmans, RTA, Staples, NYSCATE and other local businesses. With these funds, we were able to donate gift cards to teachers in the Rochester City School District that ranged from $200-$1,200. That equates to much needed learning supplies.

Our goal is to have 70+ teams to include all RCSD schools/programs, surrounding school districts, community organizations, and local businesses to participate and to raise enough funds for each program to really feel the impact of the community's donations. With your registration, additional financial contributions, and participation in helping to spread the word about this event, we can make it happen together!
