Our entire school will be participating in our 19th Annual Race for Education.  Our goal is to raise $50,000 for our scholarship fund to keep HPCA affordable for the families we serve!

The Race for Education will take place in Hunting Park at Team Vick Field.  Students, staff, and Special Runners will walk or jog around a 1/4 mile track for one hour.  Here are the Race Times:

Pre-K, Kindergarten, and 1st Grade:  9:30 am - 10:30 am
5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th Grades:  10:50 am - 11:50 am
2nd, 3rd, and 4th Grades: 12:45 pm - 1:45 pm

Special Runner Information

Special Runners are welcome to join us this year for our 19th Annual Race for Education!!! 

WHAT do I have to do?

It's easy to be a Special Runner! Simply ask friends and family to sponsor you with a tax-deductible donation, or you can sponsor yourself with a flat donation. Then, commit to walking, jogging, or running for one hour.  If you can join us during our Race for Education on Wednesday, April 24th, that would be great!  If you are unable to make it on this date, feel free to find a place to walk, jog, or run for one hour when it is convenient to you.

WHO can be a Special Runner?

A Special Runner is anyone who is not an HPCA student but would like to participate in raising funds for HPCA. Special Runners are a huge help to our fundraising efforts! It's a very tangible way to show support to our students.  You absolutely do not have to be a "runner."  You can walk, jog, or run at your own page.  You can also join as an individual, with a friend, or create a team. You can even be a church representative and have your church sponsor you.
