About the Race

The 3rd Annual Friends School of Wilmington (FSW) 5K and 1 Mile Family Fun Run is a fundraiser event to promote family, friendship, and a strong sense of community and well-being. All funds raised will directly benefit the students and teachers of FSW to help enhance educational experiences, while encouraging a healthy and active lifestyle for families, students, staff and the entire community.

About the Cause

Friends School of Wilmington is a progressive learning community committed to teaching children to find and keep their balance in a changing world. Firmly rooted in enduring Quaker values, Friends School is a vibrant learning community that chooses simplicity, peaceful resolution of conflict, integrity, equality, and stewardship of the earth as a collective and personal responsibility.
