HARRELLS — Preparations are underway for the 5th annual HCA Race for Technology at River Landing in Wallace on Nov. 11 at 9 a.m. As in its previous four years, the 5K race raises money for improved hardware and STEAM Lab support at Harrells Christian Academy. The general public is invited to run, walk, cheer, and volunteer at this Veterans Day event.
This year, the school will dedicate the race to supporting men and women serving in the United States Military, donating ten percent of the race proceeds to the very deserving Patriot Foundation. This foundation provides scholarship funding for children of killed, wounded, or injured soldiers from Fort Bragg, NC and Fort Campbell, KY. You can learn more about their mission at patriotfoundation.com.
In its history, the 5K race has generated nearly $100,000 from generous sponsors who know the great importance of readying proficient leaders for technology-based occupations and who support HCA’s efforts to keep pace with the constantly changing technology space. This year those sponsors will also be giving to those who guard and protect our great country.
On the day of the race, runners can fill out and wear an honor badge dedicating their race to an esteemed veteran or personal hero. They can also bring these heroes to cheer them on at the finish line and enjoy a special veterans hospitality tent.
