Rev it Up! 5k/10k Festival and Expo

Sparta P.A.L. was started in the 1960’s by Fred Gefken (former Sparta Police Chief), with the mission of Police Officers interacting with Sparta Youth in a positive way through athletics. The goal of the Sparta P.A.L. Basketball itself is to provide 4th-8th grade boys and girls a positive environment to learn and apply the principles of teamwork, discipline, dedication, and sportsmanship. It is all about the kids!

The funds raised at this event helped pay for the athletes’ participation in summer and fall programs. These programs allow them to train toward competing on a higher level for those interested.
