About This Activity

The Winter Haven Christian School 5k Golden Classic will start at the Winter Haven Public Library in downtown Winter Haven.  The 3.1 mile loop course will go through dowtown, include a paved trail, and conclude at Central Park.
Winter Haven Christian School was founded in 1963 and has had a half-century of serving our students, families, teachers, and community.  We currently serve students in Pre-K3 through 11th grade.  Next year, we will ad 12th grade and will ahve our first graduating class in 2016.  As our program grow, we have need for new facilities.  Our school is able to remain serving by raising money and support through an annual fundraiser.  
The WHCS fundraiser for the 2014-15 school year is going to be the Winter Haven Christian School 5k Golden Classic.  This race will help bring in the necessary funds to allow our school to continue to function and expand.
