About the Spirit Sprint 5k

5th Annual Spirit Sprint 5k Run/Walk
The Spirit Sprint 5k Run/Walk is now in its fifth year! To date, this event has raised more than $41,000 in support of athletic and extracurricular programming at participating schools. Last year, the Groveport Madison Cruisers walked away with $10,000 in support of their athletic program. The Gahanna-Lincoln Lions earned $5,000, which they used to offset participation fees for both the girls’ and boys’ cross country teams.
Come show off your school pride, and encourage everyone in your community to join you! Why? Earnings are based on each school’s total number of registered participants. Every school walks away with 80% of their registration proceeds, so the more people who sign up in support of your school – the MORE money you raise! And to keep things interesting…the school with the greatest number of registered participants leaves with bragging rights, a trophy and the BIGGEST check of all!
Participating school districts, as of April 2014: 

Groveport Madison   
Columbus School for Girls
