Field Day of Awesomeness fun-raiser for Asheville City Schools Foundation

Join us for this family-friendly event on April 18th! Bring an Adult Division Team (all members 18+) or a Family Division Team (with a member age 12+) or bring the whole family to cheer YOU on! Get active and have some fun in the sun with Asheville City Schools Foundation!

What is the Field Day of Awesomeness? It’s a team competition that takes your traditional ideas of Field Day and twists them into awesome! “Think the best part of spring at school, add a whole lot of laughs and you've probably got the picture,” explains ACS Foundation Co-Director Leah Ferguson. "And if you haven't heard, the winners will get to meet Chuck Norris!"

All proceeds will go to support high quality programming for kids in our public schools. Programs provide students with integrated arts, hands-on conservation education, seek to close the achievement gap and connect with 21st century skills.

Things to note: use alternative transportation (bike, bus, or walk) and receive a redeemable time reduction.

Come with a team theme costume and enter the team theme competition.

Registration is now open.
