Helping Out Williston Central School

While this 5K can be exciting and fun at helping you push yourself, it’s actually for a great cause. This fun run helps bring in funding for the school through a variety of means. The money brought in during the 5K helps fund field trips, new technology for the classroom, student services, educational grants, and teacher appreciation, as well as speakers and workshops. In these tough times where funding for education is at an all-time low, events like the Williston Runs! 5K helps bring in the necessary funding to help pave the way for the future generations.

Get involved and register for the Williston Runs! 5K/ Relay & Kids Fun Run to help support local education!
