Meet the Kids Behind the Race
The Huntsville Inner City Learning Center (HICLC) is home to an after-school program for a pretty incredible group of K-7th grade kids. Many of them come from tough backgrounds, and many of them have some hard stories to hear. But the HICLC provides them with a place to exercise their minds and their bodies through physical activities, Biblical studies, fellowship, a hot meal, and tutoring.
Give What Back?
The HICLC kids have been given much through their participation, but have also learned to give to others in the world with even greater needs. Each year, they choose a charity for their donation, earning money through an annual 5K event.
So Why Participate?
Whether you’re an avid runner, an occasional race participant, or a complete newbie, you are invited to join us on May 6. Let’s support the students of the HICLC as they break away from a culture of dependence and show the world that GREAT things can happen in their neighborhood. Join a great cause and Give it Back!
