Saturday, April 27th from 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The GCA “Royalty Dash” Run/Walk will be a family event & fun for all ages. The events will include a 3K Run/Walk, a “Fun Run” for the kids, a “Daddy Dash” for the dads, and a “Stroller Roller” for the moms. Robert, a radio announcer from WMBG, will be our DJ for this event. A Bounce House Castle and a large playground nearby will provide entertainment for the kids. Participants (adults and kids) are encouraged to don their best “royal” outfits. The students will be creating crowns in their Art classes at school. Prizes will be presented for the best "royal" costumes. If you cannot attend  the run/walk that day, you may choose the option of becoming a "Virtual Runner.“ Sponsors may support a runner or walker with a cash donation. Proceeds from this event will be used for the general fund and to enhance our STEM & technology programs. Soon you will be receiving more information in an email. The email will explain how to sign up online as a participant and how to invite friends and family to sponsor a runner or walker.

The festivities will conclude with a cook out where you may purchase lunch for your family.

Cheryl Brehm, Mrs. America finalist 2015, will be joining the festivities for "royal" photo ops.
