American International College and the K-12 Teacher's Alliance present the third annual Run for Education. This 5k race highlights the great importance of our PreK-12 educators in both our children's lives and in our communities.

The Run for Education is an extension of AIC's long-standing commitments to create future educators and support our regional school systems. In the spirit of both academic and physical fitness, participants will race along the city of Springfield's storied State Street corridor to AIC's new track facility. The top three running teams will receive a cash prize, with an additional cash donation made to the school of their choice. Check back often as registration information will be available soon.
