Benefits BSCSD Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund 

BALLSTON SPA — The Ballston Spa Central School District has announced that the inaugural Scotties Stampede, the Ballston Spa 5k for Education, will be held on Saturday, May 21, at 9 a.m.  The primary goal of the 5K is to bring the school community together and encourage students (and their families) to participate in healthy and active lifestyles. The entire community is invited to walk or run in this fun athletic event organized by the school district.


Financially, the 5K will provide revenue for the district’s Ballston Spa Partnership for Innovation in Education Fund, a component fund of the Community Foundation for the Greater Capital Region.  This field of interest fund is used to support the various innovative and mission-related programs throughout the district that include Sponsor-A-Scholar, Robotics, the Performing and Fine Arts, STEM enrichment initiatives and the Clean Technologies and Sustainable Industries Early College High School (Clean Tech ECHS).


The school district is grateful for all of the sponsors that are making the event possible including platinum and media sponsors Lemery Greisler LLC, LookMedia, and Saratoga TODAY; and gold sponsors Empire BlueCross, Healthy Living Market Saratoga, Leonard Bus Sales, Inc., and TCT Federal Credit Union.
