Supporting the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation

We’re about 122 days –about four months — away from the 18th annual Charleston James Island Connector Run! The race will be Saturday, October 22 beginning at Canon Park in downtown Charleston, S.C.

The race is the primary fundraiser for the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation, which provides scholarships to students with disabilities at the College of Charleston, The Citadel, Charleston Southern University, Trident Technical College, the Medical University of South Carolina and the Art Institute of Charleston.

I was a recipient of the scholarship while I attended College of Charleston, and I’m proud to continue to be a part of the organization. Bringing education within reach for students who may not have otherwise had the opportunity is an amazing feeling.

To learn more about the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation and the Charleston James Island Connector Run, take a look at the video below. By the way, it’s not too early to sign up for the race!

About Tuesday Talk With Alex

Born in Charleston, SC, I was injured in a motor vehicle accident when I was nine months old. I acquired a C5-C6 spinal cord injury. I'm now 30 years old and I do not let my disability deter me from acheiving my goals and enjoying life. I will be sharing my experience of living with a spinal cord injury.
