About the Event

In 2010, Leslie Peterson, a local Mom with 2 kids at Banks Elementary came up with an idea of a 5K/10K race for raising much needed money for technology at Banks Elementary School. The inaugural race in June 2011 was very successful and is now a highly anticipated community event.

The past seven events have raised a total of $35,000 for the Banks Elementary technology fund.  Students and teachers have greatly appreciated the purchase of over head projectors(2011), tablets(2012), software updates(2013) and typing software(2014), a special typing software for kindergartners for state testing and additional tablets/cart(2015).  Additional IPads for class rooms(2016).  Expansion of interactive platform in classrooms for students to create, share and design using technology(2017 and 2018).  The purchases have truly enhanced student learning.  With your support we look forward to the 2019 results!
