The HCA Toga Trot 5K, hosted by Heritage Christian Academy, is an event of "Olympic" proportions. Racers will be donning their best togas and Olympic wear, and hitting the pavement for a morning full of fun! HCA is the only school of its kind in Winter Haven, FL. We provide a classical education for students, and our vigorous curriculum and small class sizes offer an experience that is both challenging and individualized for each student. Proceeds from the Toga Trot will go toward helping HCA continue to serve families of Winter Haven and the surrounding area by providing funds for school needs, scholarships for deserving students, and more.
