Grow Your Own Teacher 5KThe Ft. Zumwalt Education Foundation is proud to present the 9th annual Leadership timed 5K walk/run and untimed fun 1.2 mile Family Fun Run hosted by the Ft. Zumwalt School District's Leadership classes. All proceeds from this family oriented event will go to help fund the Grow Your Own Teacher (GYOT) program. The GYOT Program allows the foundation to provide scholarships to Fort Zumwalt graduates working towards earning a degree and certification to teach in high needs subject areas.

The 5K course will be chip timed by our locally owned and operated run specialty company, Feet Feet Sports. The race begins and ends at Ft. Zumwalt North High School and takes runners through O'Fallon and by TR Hughes baseball stadium (Home of the River City Rascals).

5K participants will receive a tech t-shirt. The top runner in each age group will be awarded medals. Each runner will be cheered on by the Fort Zumwalt High School mascots, dancers, cheerleaders, and various other high school clubs and organizations.
