Horizons is a transformative educational enrichment program serving low-income public school students with a broad range of academic abilities. Through Horizons, students gain the tools and support they need to become successful and confident college-bound young adults.
Specifically, Horizons aims to:
- Mitigate summer decline in students' academic achievement
- Improve students' school-year attendance and performance over time
- Build self-esteem and raise students' aspirations and vision for success
- Encourage families to become involved in their children's education

The Horizons at Norwood 5K is a professionally timed race that starts and ends on the campus of Norwood School in Bethesda, Maryland. The fast, flat course winds through a beautiful Potomac neighborhood. Prizes will be awarded to the top three male and female 5K finishers.
The one-mile fun run takes place entirely on campus. All proceeds from both events support Horizons Greater Washington. Runners and walkers are welcome in both events.
This year's race and fun run will take place on Sunday, April 30, 2017. The 5K will start at 8:30 am, followed by the Fun Run at 8:40 am.
