We are four days away from the 16th Annual Charleston James Island Connector Run! Get ready to lace up those shoes and get those bikes in gear as we raise money for students with disabilities.
All of the proceeds go to the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation and support students at College of Charleston, The Citadel, Charleston Southern University, Trident Technical College, The Art Institute of Charleston and the Medical University of South Carolina.
These scholarship recipients come from different backgrounds, but they all have one goal in common: to achieve their educational dreams. They have the same indomitable spirit for learning and becoming productive citizens.
As National Disability Employment Awareness Month comes to an end, it’s just the beginning for these students to start their careers.
Live 5 News has done a video series for the past few weeks featuring many of the scholarship recipients. Check out the videos at http://search.live5news.com/default.aspx?ct=r&q=james+island+connector+run.
Join us November 1 for the Charleston James Island Connector Run and support a great cause! Register online at www.jicrun.com by October 29 or register in person on race day.
