About This Activity

This is a 5k hosted by Simple Charity, a student organization started at North Forsyth High School this year. Simple Charity exists with a goal of raising $100,000 to fight global poverty in Jesus' name by the end of the school year. All of the money raised at this 5k will go to Just One: Africa to provide water filters for a village in Kenya. Each water filter is $65 and can purify 1,000,000 gallons of water, so each person that signs up for this event is effectively giving about 300,000 of clean drinking water! So tell your friends! If you dont want to run but would still like to make a donation to the cause, click here.

Event details and schedule

Runner sign in will begin at 7:15 am. The race will begin at 8:00 am. Fun Run will begin at 9:00 am. Parking will be outside of the Performing Arts Center at North Forsyth High School. We will be set up on the side of the North Forsyth Middle School, which is where the start and the finish line of the race will be. The run will trek down Smith Lane and Fast Lane, and also around the middle and high schools. Just One: Africa will be selling some really pretty jewelry made by some of the Kenyans that they partner with so bring money if you're interested! *Sign up by March 20th to guarantee that you get a t-shirt. After that, you can still sign up and remaining t-shirts will be given out on a first come first serve basis the day of the event.
