We are excited to bring our race back in person this year and thrilled to announce some big changes! We’ve renamed the race the Lightning Run because we adopted an amazing, improved route. The previous Lightning Run attracted over 500 participants because runners know this course provides an opportunity for fast Peachtree Road Race qualifying times. We anticipate attracting more runners than ever!
Sandy Springs Education Force has been at the forefront of supporting the educational successes of financially vulnerable students in Sandy Springs for over a decade. With support from our sponsors, we provide targeted educational outreach programs that make a difference for public school students in Sandy Springs. In the past few years, we created new programs and adapted to address pandemic-related needs. For example, we expanded our successful Summer Book Club to ensure students did not lose their reading gains over the summer break, launched a very successful tutoring program and kept engaged with our community during these challenging times. Students are still facing vast educational gaps, especially children whose families have limited financial means. Please support our race to help us continue our work helping to bridge the gap for students.
