The 2014 Race to Benefit Education will be run on June 17 at 11:30 a.m. at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. The event will put 10 local school superintendents behind the wheel of school buses at the facility.
According to a release: “Each person will have to carefully guide his or her bus through an agonizingly difficult course of traffic cones placed all along the NHMS track. There will be slaloms, a chicane, tight turns, narrow lanes, and a couple of trouble spots that are bound to make each educator break out in a sweat.”
The winner of the event will earn a check for $10,000 to spent on the education program of their choice.
Included in the event will be Londonderry, N.H. superintendent Nate Greenberg; Derry N.H. superintendent Laura Nelson; Sanborn Regional superintendent Brian Blake; Manchester, N.H. assistant superintendent David Ryan; Franklin, N.H. High School principal Richard Towne; Rochester, N.H. superintendent Mike Hopkins; Concord, N.H. assistant superintendent Matt Cashman; Goffstown, N.H. superintendent Brian Balke; Exeter, N.H. superintendent Mike Morgan and Merrimack Valley, N.H. superintendent Mike Martin.
According to the track release: “These school Superintendents may be able to leap over a school budget in a single bound, they may be more powerful than a chalkboard eraser, and tougher than the worst school yard bully, but can anyone climb aboard a bus and tame the beast?”
