Run. Build. Go.

The elementary students at CPA just finished Run. Build. Go. which was a service opportunity where all the kids individually (over time) logged in a marathon worth of miles! Each mile they ran was sponsored and they raised money to build houses in a community in Honduras. Friday afternoon the entire school completed the final lap together and we found out that these students ended up with enough miles collectively that they ran all the way to Australia!!! They also blew away their initial goal of building six houses in the community and instead will be building 16 (over $40,000 raised)!!! Woo Hoo!!! Way to go students! We were there to cheer Jack on as he trotted along in his boot! Thanks to those of you who supported him 🙂
