"Race for Education" was started in 2001 by a group of parents who
wanted to help raise much needed funds for programs, such as art music and
physical education, that were scheduled to be cut to balance the school's
budget. Thanks to the generous donations of our sponsors, every penny
from the proceeds, goes directly back to the classroom. In fact, one half
of the net proceeds go to district wide distribution and the other half
to the Shelby County school that you designate or district-wide
distribution. Each school will decide with the help of principals, parents and
teachers, how to best spend the funds they receive from the proceeds of the
race. We are celebrating our 12th anniversary race this year....come join the
