Sprint for Our Schools
THANK YOU to all who participated in and sponsored the 4th Annual Sprint for Our Schools on May 13, 2017. The event raised over $32,000 for the Ramsey public schools!! We are so grateful for your support.
Sprint For Our Schools is a 5K Race and 1-mile Fun Run presented by RPEF each May. More than 1000 participants come together for a community-oriented morning of running, walking, fun, food, music and more. Participation from students and teachers from all five Ramsey Public Schools is encouraged and so appreciated. The 5K Race is a United States Track and Field Association (USATF) sanctioned event on a certified course. We are delighted that so many outside of our Ramsey community also choose to participate in this race. Timing and scoring is provided by BEST Racing Systems utilizing chip technology. The start and finish line are at the Ramsey Municipal Pool on East Oak Street. The 5K begins at 8:30am and the Fun Run begins at approximately 9:30am. Refreshments are provided after the race. Awards go to the top finishers in various age groups. Registration typically begins in Feb/March, but registrations are accepted right up to the morning of the race.
Sponsorship from businesses and families is sought to defray the costs of holding this large event. Please see our Sponsorship Opportunities link to find out how you can help support us. All money raised by the RPEF goes back to all five public schools in Ramsey through several different types of grants. Please support this worthwhile cause. It is truly a pleasure to host it.
