Racing for a Cause

April 14, 2019

Knoxville and Oklahoma City both competed in recent community races to benefit organizations that help America’s kids.

Knoxville’s Beth Crisco-Kestner, Ben Swanner, Greg Babbit, and Greg Schwartz participated in the annual Knoxville Marathon to benefit the Knoxville Track Club (KTC), which supports a community youth running program called Knoxville Youth Runs (KYR). KYR is a joint program of the Community Schools Program/Great Schools Partnership, the KTC, and the Knox County elementary and middle schools. The group participated in the four-person marathon relay, completing all 26.2 miles!

Oklahoma City participated in the Oklahoma City Redbud Classic 5K. For 37 years, the Redbud has been a beloved tradition in Oklahoma City to raise money for non-profit organizations that benefit the community. This year’s beneficiary was Teach for America, which finds, develops, and supports a remarkable network of teachers and leaders who expand opportunity for children through bold innovations in education. The group had a great time, and they all made it across the finish line!
