• Achieva’s Run for GOOD Returns to Sarasota

    Annual 5K Race, Kids Run and Dog Walk to benefit local classrooms


    Sarasota, Fla. (Jan. 10, 2017) – Achieva Credit Union’s annual Run for GOOD will help make big steps in local classrooms on Saturday, January 28, with a 5K, Kids Run and Dog Walk, raising money that goes directly into Sarasota schools.


    The race will lead runners through a two-lap course at Payne Park and offer fun for the whole family— photo booth and face painting, among other vendors will be in attendance. A doggie costume contest will also bring the furry friends in on the fun. Sarasota County Sheriff’s Animal Services will have animals available for on-site adoptions at the event. Registration is now open and all participants will receive a commemorative Dri-Fit shirt and free post-run breakfast. Proceeds will benefit local Sarasota Schools through the Achieva Foundation, a 501(c)(3) Corporation.


    “We’re excited to host another great event for the community,” said Achieva CEO Gary Regoli.  “And we can’t wait to see so many people come out and help take part in the GOOD. All of the money raised at these events really makes a difference inside our local classrooms.”
