The Forsyth BYOT Benefit will host its fourth annual iRun for BYOT 5K & Fun Run on Saturday, Oct. 6 to help get technology in the hands of students in need.
The event will be held at Shiloh Point Elementary School, with the 5K race starting at 8 a.m. and Fun Run for children under 10 years old beginning at 9 a.m. There will be face painting, music, bouncy houses and a coffee and smoothie bar from Mocha My Day.
The 5K is $25 plus a $3 signup fee, while the Fun Run for children is $15 plus a $3 signup fee. The 5K also serves a qualifying event for the Peachtree Road Race.
The Forsyth BYOT Benefit was created by Dr. Jim and Peggie Morrow of Morrow Family Medicine to provide internet and technology devices to students without access to those resources, and the charity holds two fundraising events a year: a golf tournament in May, and the iRun in October.
In five years, the two events have raised over $220,000 for Forsyth County Schools.
