The Sister School’s 5K Run offers both a 5K (3.1 mile) course, as well as a Kids’ Mile Fun Run through the beautiful Veteran’s Park in Alabaster, AL. Participants of all ages and abilities are invited to attend. All event proceeds will benefit our Sister Schools Project. During the summer 2016 students, teachers, staff, and professional mentors traveled to Honduras to set up a Sister School with three schools in rural Honduras. The team will be returning to the area again this summer to refresh the schools and also add rooms to another school in the area.
