FALMOUTH EDUCATION VIRTUAL 5K
Since its inception in 2011, this annual 5K walk/run has raised over $60,000 for the Falmouth Education Foundation and the Falmouth Pubic Schools. FEF is very excited that the race will live on virtually in 2020! We are taking the opportunity to invite friends near and far to join us in supporting this most important cause. The 2020 Falmouth Education 5K will be a chance to get outdoors, raise money, and celebrate the dedication of our educators and the generosity of our community.
We are all in the midst of something unprecedented, and there is a lot we don't know. But with your help, FEF will continue to provide resources that enhance excellence in our schools.
