Fall 5k

EUGO Race for Education 5K/1M

5K 2015

The Race for Education is a walk/run fundraiser for I Know I Can, a Columbus nonprofit organization that prepares Columbus city students for post-secondary education. Similar to EUGO’s mission to engage college students in service, community, and academic success, I Know I Can seeks to “inspire, enable and support Columbus City Schools students in pursuing and completing a college education.”

The 2015 walk/run brought out over 100 participants from the Greater Columbus area and the broader Ohio community. Runners raised $1,200 for charity with friends, family and plenty of cool, autumn sunshine! All proceeds go to I Know I Can. You can find photos from the 2012 , 2013, and 2014 races online.

Please visit the I Know I Can website for more information.
