5K and 1 Mile Fun Run is to help raise money for Sandersville Elementary. Sharks on the Run began in 2010 as a club for third grade girls who want to exercise and learn about healthy eating habits. This club was the brainchild of Mrs. Kitchen, a third grade teacher at Sandersville. She came up with the idea for the club because; "I never learned about exercise at an early age. I also wanted to get some exercise, and I thought that exercising with kids would motivate me." Since 2010, hundreds of students and racers have participated in this annual community event.
