The Road to College 5K
Aug 24 2013
The University of Georgia School Counseling Association
The Road to College 5K’s primary purpose is to serve the Athens community as a grassroots effort to increase awareness of the low graduation rates in Georgia (specifically Clarke County at 66%), the organizations working to create positive change in the community, and the opportunities that exist for Georgia’s citizens to become actively engaged.
Secondarily, the race committee intends to contribute 100 percent of the proceeds from the race to the formation of a scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to a Clarke County School District high school senior planning to pursue higher education. The recipient of the scholarship must be planning to enroll in a two- or four-year college, university, or technical school in the fall of 2014.
This is a fun way to get engaged, stay healthy, and stay connected to this beautiful community that is Athens, Georgia. We look forward to seeing you on THE ROAD TO COLLEGE!!!
