About This Activity

We are excited to be hosting our 2nd annual 5k, The Spritzer, on July 4, 2016 near the SGI Lighthouse that will benefit the Franklin County High School Girl’s and Boy’s Cross Country Team for the upcoming 2016 season. This race will be run beginning in front of the Blue Parrot and ending in front of B.J.'s Pizza on Saint George Island. It will most likely be a little hot, but no worries, we will have FCS Cross Country runners every couple of streets to help keep you cool with cold water "spritz".

Our goal is to provide an opportunity for both girls and boys to physically and mentally challenge themselves in a caring and nurturing environment that stresses personal development and teaches many life lessons.

During our second season, this past fall, we had 19 runners come out and participate all season long (up seven athletes from last year).  They gave up ten Saturdays, and every weekday afternoon for three and a half months. Two of our boys placed in the top fifteen at districts allowing them to advance to regionals where they placed in the top fifty. One of whom, Simon Hodgson, placed 14th and became the first runner from Franklin County School to complete at the state level—ending up 78th in the state. All Cross Country runners participated in Track & Field this spring and their strength, stamina, and endurance has grown tremendously. Your support of this race will help us continue to develop the program and encourage participation. Race fees will be used to maintain team uniforms, pay meet fees, end-of-the-year awards, and to help send runners to summer camp. This is a great opportunity to positively affect the lives of our children.
