Go for Good 5K will benefit a different organization each year that positively impacts the lives of students.  For 2023, Go for Good 5K will benefit Live Oak Academy!  Come join us for a great start to your new year -- run, walk, jog, mosey -- just go!

Live Oak Academy is a student-driven learning experience that allows students to accelerate their graduation on their own schedule. Students at Live Oak Academy apply and must have the intrinsic motivation to independently pursue a challenging course of study.

For the Love of Go is excited to share more about this rich resource and we hope you will join us!
