The AES Runs the World 5K and (new!) Fun Run is a signature fundraising event for the Avondale Elementary School Education Foundation (AESEF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit established in Fall 2016. Our mission is to develop resources that remove barriers and create opportunities for student achievement at Avondale Elementary School (AES). We envision that every child at AES has the resources to thrive. Last year (our first year), we raised $8,000 and were able to invest in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program with the purchase of robots and 3-D printers. Three of our students placed at the DeKalb technology fair, and one placed at the state technology fair. We will use this year's funds to continue to build STEM programming and outdoor spaces (Chromebooks, STEM garden, etc.) and to help build a new playground.

NEW FUN RUN! We have added a one-mile Fun Run for the little legs in addition too
