Morgan Radaj, one of our Middle School Students, is organizing the following event:
The DATE has been set for Sunday, May 18th, 2014, 1-2:30 p.m.
JOIN US for the 4th Annual KIDS Charity Run/Walk
Choose your charity (any charity you want) and decide on a fundraising goal.
Do the best you can (getting donations), and then join us on May 18th to see how many laps you can run/walk around the track.
The more laps you do = more money for your charity 🙂
Hi, my name is Morgan. I am 12-years-old. I started this event four years ago and am very excited that it gets bigger and bigger each year 🙂 I got the idea for this event because I was too young to run in an adult charity run that my mother was doing….. so… I created my own.
I am challenging kids at an early age to stop and look at the world around them. This Run/Walk is an opportunity for KIDS – to help anyone or anything in this world & it doesn’t matter what it is. Everyone is different and they should have an opportunity to have an opinion about what they are interested in – even at age 5, or age 6, or beyond. I want to help young kids realize that it doesn’t matter how old you are… Even Kids can make a difference in this world!
It’s okay to be a kid… but it’s also okay, even at a young age, to be empathetic, a good citizen, and to learn to “give” instead of only receive. “Giving” and “helping” feels good – and – it can be fun!
