The Golden Gallop is the annual fundraiser for the Golden Schools Foundation (GSF) which provides educational funding for our seven Golden neighborhood articulation schools. GSF is a 501(c)(3) formed to help encourage a high level of performance and accountability at the Golden neighborhood articulation schools. In 2019, the Golden Gallop made it possible to provide nearly $40,000 back to our schools.
Anywhere you would like. Plot your own course!
