  • Show your support to the community — be a role model for a healthy and active lifestyle. Your community needs you!
  • Sponsor a child — want to be a real local hero? Sponsor a child to run/walk and allow them to experience the joy and camaraderie of crossing the "finish line" and celebrating with friends/family.

About Keeping Teachers Teaching

Keeping Teachers Teaching, Inc. is a one-of-a-kind nonprofit organization devoted to the needs of teachers. Our inspiration comes from the overwhelming reality of current economic conditions and educational funding cuts that have left educators in dire need of community support. Teachers spend $500-$1000 per year out-of-pocket purchasing classroom supplies. Our purpose is to ensure a higher quality education for our children by giving them valued, respected and appreciated teachers, free of financial strife and adversity by assisting in supporting their efforts to acquire advanced certifications or licenses. Teachers should not have to sacrifice their own financial stability to ensure classrooms needs are being met.

*kids 5 and under are free. No registration required. Event will take place rain or shine.
