FCEF Run for the Schools
DescriptionThe 16th annual FCEF Run for the Schools is on and scheduled for Sunday, September 13th, 2020 at 8am!
Registration is now open and can be found at www.fcedf.org/runfortheschools. This year we are providing an option to run the race virtually, while still supporting The Foundation. While the intent is to hold the race as a live event, if government guidelines regarding COVID-19 determine it best, the FCEF Run for the Schools may be converted into a virtual race.
