Join  EGCSD Staff and Students on September 9th for the...

The Teal Ribbon Run/Walk, coordinated by Caring Together, Inc., seeks to raise awareness of ovarian cancer and raise funds in support of research toward developing an early detection test as well as more effective treatment options for women with recurrent ovarian cancer.
5K run and a one mile walk both start and finish at the Washington Park Lake House on the west (Madison Avenue) side of the Park. Paved roads throughout. There are awards, raffles, prizes, and ovarian cancer awareness materials.
The 2015 Run/Walk raised over $128,000 with proceeds going to support research and awareness activities.

Last year, the Columbia  Athletics Team had a record 435 participants from our school community, raising more than $5,300 for this great cause. The goal for this year is 500 participants. Every registered runner or walker will receive a race shirt and a Columbia Athletics shirt.  Additionally, Columbia Athletic Director Michael Leonard will donate $1.00 for every team member that beats him in the 5k Run or the 1 Mile Walk.  Contact the Athletic Department at 207-2080 if you need assistance with registration.
