Second Annual Rite Care 5k and 1-mile charity run/walk

Seniors at Landrum High School, Sarah Cash and Morgan McLellan, are hard at work again this year organizing the Second Annual Rite Care 5k and 1-mile charity run/walk for their National Honor Society project. Having been selected again this year to be a part of the National Honor Society at LHS, the girls are required to complete 15 hours of volunteer time on an individual project. Considering that both of the girls are members of the back-to-back 2012 and 2013 2A State Champion Cross Country team, the 5K run/walk is the perfect project.
This Saturday, April 26, the second annual Rite Care 5k and 1-mile charity run/walk will be held at Landrum High School. All of the proceeds of the event will go to the Rite Care Centers for Childhood Speech and Language Disorders in South Carolina.
The Rite Care Foundation operates three centers in the state in Greenville, Columbia and Charleston. The focus of the centers is to provide speech and language treatment for preschool children to help prepare them for school.
Treatment is provided to the families at no charge and every penny raised goes directly to improving the lives of these young children.
Come out and support these young ladies and this wonderful charity. Runners and walkers are invited to participate in either the 5K or 1-mile events. You can register online at www.active.com (search Rite Care 5K) or register the day of the race at the Landrum High School football field.
Commemorative t-shirts go to the first 100 entries and prizes will be awarded to over all winners and to age level winners as well. For more information please call 864-590-3297.
