Oakhurst Cooperative Preschool (OCP) is a nonprofit, parent-teacher cooperative established in 2005. The school was founded with the goal of creating an ethnically, culturally, and economically diverse community that is united both through its commitment to parental involvement in education, as well as fostering a respect for the environment. OCP is one of the few preschools including environmental education in its curriculum. By introducing environmental education to young children in a way that engages and intrigues them, we promote a gentle awareness of our impact on the world, and how we can make a positive difference in the greater community.

Compostable cups will be provided to all runners, and special efforts will be made to collect any compostable or recyclable waste generated by the event.
