In March 2013, 20 students who have never been on a plane will travel to either Ghana or Costa Rica, for the once in a lifetime chance to expand their learning beyond the walls of their classroom at Ballou SHS. All proceeds from the Ballou International 5K will support our program in sending these students on their international educational adventures. Please come join us and run around the block so our students can run around the world!
We ask that all registrants commit to fundraising $100 in support of our traveling students! When you register, a fundraising page will automatically be created for you (the link to this page is e-mailed to you immediately after registration). Use this fundraising page to e-mail potential donors, and keep track of how much you have fundraised.
All participants will meet at the North Parking lot of Ballou Senior High School. (On 4th St SE, between MLK Ave SE and Mississippi Ave SE). Please park in the big lot (also on 4th St, near the football field), and proceed to the North Parking lot for registration.
