The Run About the World - 5K Fun Run

Support global education!

The Run About the World is an annual 5k fun run or walk fundraiser to raise scholarship and discount funding for A.C.E. World Language & Culture Ambassadors classes. This is a family friendly event and an excellent way to support world language and culture educational opportunities for the youth in our communities! On May 16, 2015 The Run About the World held the 3rd annual event bringing out over 200 people and raising over $8,000. It was a huge success and we hope to beat those numbers next year! Please check back to find out the date for the 4th annual event.
