When Our Schools Are Better, Our Communities Are Better
Run For The Schools is a fundraiser for all schools in East Tennessee (public and private), is open to the public, and features a 5k run/walk and 100-yard dash (children 12 and under) in Chilhowee Park and a 1-mile family fun walk through the Knoxville Zoo. The event features music, refreshments, vendor booths, prizes and more! Participants also receive complimentary admission to the Knoxville Zoo the day of the race!
Schools raise money based on their participation in the race. The more people that run for a school, the more money the school gets! Run For The Schools is a family-oriented fundraising event designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle and engage local communities in support of their schools.
