Burke County Public Schools is preparing for our first “Shamrock Shuffle 5K and Color Me Green 1-Mile Fun Run” , . This 5k and fun run is a fundraiser with proceeds going to the Burke Education Foundation Inc.
The 5k will be a timed event and the 1-mile fun run will be a color event. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, fun run participants are encouraged to dress up in their favorite leprechaun getup and should come prepared to be turned green.
Thank you to our business sponsors: Gragg Orthodontics, Aaron's, 100 West Union, Western Piedmont Community College and Carolinas HealthCare System Blue Ridge. Want to help sponsor? Call Cheryl M. Shuffler at 828-438-2989 or fill out this form.
A registration form for runners also is attached or you can register online here. There's a spot on the form to list school affiliation. The school with the most representatives at the event will receive $500.
Come out and participate in and bring your friends and family to the Shamrock Shuffle. You don't want to miss this fun event as we shuffle along the Greenway and support education in Burke County.
