The MacDuffie School is holding our fourth annual Run for Hope charity 5k.
The Run for Hope serves as a way for students to give back to our global community and bring our local community together. The student-run charity event benefits a different charity each year. Students nominate and vote on charity selection. Past charities have included Sister Connection, The American Red Cross, and The United Nations Children’s Fund. Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit Doctors without Borders to help support Ebola research.
In addition to the race there will be family-friendly activities, including a one mile Fun Run and a barbecue. The Run for Hope is held on the MacDuffie School campus and uses the school’s cross country trail. The race starts at 10:00 am on April 25, 2015 and is held rain or shine.
