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.
