About This Activity

Cary High students have been working with the community to raise the funds needed to help start a world-class educational system in the world's newest country - South Sudan. Your participation in our Students for South Sudan 5K/Color Run will help us meet these needs. Proceeds from our event will be used to purchase student desks & library books for our partner school in South Sudan. These students are in desperate need of these resources and lack the basics in regards to educational materials. You can choose to participate in the competitive 5K or non-competitive 5K/Color Run that kicks off & ends at Cary High's Stadium. We hope you will join us!
