Rooted in Baltimore’s Park Heights/Pimlico community since 1982, Dayspring, Inc. provides children with high-quality educational programs, services, and resources that support and promote their total development (intellectual, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical) and help them become productive, giving members of society.
The purpose of the DAYSPRING RUN/WALK FOR EDUCATION 2015 is to raise funds for the Visions for Education (VFE) initiative designed to provide intellectually rigorous educational programs that support high academic achievement and positive developmental outcomes for students in Grades 4 to 12. The VFE initiative includes a capital campaign to raise $2M to build a 8500 sq. ft. state-of-the-art education center to provide programs in science, math, art, technology, leadership skills, etc., for ten times more students, parents, community members, and teachers than can be accommodated in the existing center.
