Lace up your sneakers and lederhosen and join us for the 2nd Annual Fry Street Oktoberfest 100% for charity 5k and costume contest! This year's race will be benefiting two local non-profit organizations, Denton Community Food Center and The Koan School.
Founded in 1974, the Denton Community Food Center (DCFC) has had as its mission to provide food from a central community storehouse to needy individuals and families in emergency situations. The Food Pantry is an ALL Volunteer Staffed and run, donor funded and supported, community based charity (independent 501c3 organization). They service area includes 21 cities, towns & communities in 31 different zip codes of Northern Denton County.
Koan is a community-minded independent school with a learner-centered approach to education. Its unique method of individualized, project-based learning deliberately makes use of the local and global community as extensions of the classroom, because that’s at the core of what Koan is as an organization.
