All proceeds from run registrations will be donated directly to Rosemary Anderson High School (RAHS), an Opportunities Industrialization Center, Inc. (OIC) community-based alternative high school. Donations are accepted through October 21.
Rosemary Anderson High School (RAHS) is a community-based alternative high school for students who are not succeeding in the public school setting. RAHS provides open-door year round access to the “last chance” to complete a high school education, and is currently achieving a 90% graduation rate amongst students who enroll and attend classes.

Event day bib pick-up began at 1:30 pm on the course.
The 4K 4Charity Fun Run was not officially timed, but a clock was available at the start and finish line for participants to monitor their running and walking times.
Participants will select their own pacing group:
- Less than 8:00 min/mile
