NLMS's 5K Challenge is benefiting Rachel's Challenge. Rachel Joy Scott was the first person killed in the Columbine High School Shootings in Colorado, in 1999. Rachel's Challenge is a series of programs that equips children and adults to combat bullying and despair by creating a culture of kindness and compassion. Her view was that if 1 person could go out of their way to show compassion, then it would start a chain reaction of kindness. Go to www.rachelschallenge.org for more information.
Cash prizes will go to the top qualifiers in certain categories after the 5K. Specific categories will be announced soon.
