Seventh Annual MAD DASH 5K & Fun Run

Renfro is a proud sponsor of the Seventh Annual MAD (Making A Difference) Dash 5K & Fun Run, which is an event to benefit the Surry County Schools Educational Foundation. The 5K event will be held on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at 8:00 AM at Surry Central High School in Dobson, NC. A Fun Run will be held at 9:00 AM for children under 12.

The Educational Foundation for Surry County Schools was created by a group of local business leaders who are passionate about education and the future of Surry County. Board members believe investing in children’s education will impact the future of Surry County’s economy. All students deserve additional learning opportunities inside and outside of the classroom. These learning experiences can change a student’s life. The commitment of time, talent, and resources, along with your support, will help fulfill the Educational Foundation’s mission. It will help increase the level of education in our county and help students pursue higher education. Together, we will “make a difference” in Surry County…one child at a time.

The Surry County Schools Educational Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 organization created to improve the educational level of our county, enhancing our ability to further education for competition in the global market.
