Spirit Sprint 5k Event Announcement
In light of the uncertainly surrounding how large scale events will take place while limiting the spread or re-occurrence of COVID-19, Orthopedic ONE has made the difficult decision not to host the Spirit Sprint 5k in 2020.
As we observe how activities like this resume, we will evaluate the best way for the practice to continue with our mission of supporting high school athletics and extra-curricular activities.
A big THANK YOU to all the schools, sponsors, and volunteers who have supported the Spirit Sprint over the past decade!
Stay tuned for updates!
What is the Spirit Sprint 5k?
Since 2010, Orthopedic ONE has organized and hosted the Spirit Sprint 5k Run/Walk to support athletics and extracurricular activities at central Ohio high schools. The event is a fundraiser, with an enticing challenge component, to raise the funds needed to help schools offset costly expenses like pay to play fees, purchasing new equipment and uniforms, or funding the arts - such as band & theater programs.
The event goal is simple. We value the positive impact athletics and extracurricular programming has on students and we want to do our part to support and sustain these important activities into the future.
