Save the Date for the Fun Run!
The "Strides for Schools" Fun Run/Walk is an all-community event designed to encourage support and recognition for the Deer Park school system.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Deer Park Education Foundation, a non-profit, tax-exempt organization that funds teachers’ grants for creative programs not available through the normal operating budget of the school district. Participating in the Strides for Schools Fun Run helps support Deer Park ISD students as they endeavor to reach their highest potential.
Runners, walkers, and supporters of all shapes and sizes, as well as families from Deer Park and surrounding communities, are encouraged to participate for a morning of competition, exercise, and outdoor fun.
