About This Activity

On April 20, 1990 while enjoying lunch on the front steps of Columbine High School, Rachel Joy Scott
became the first victim in the school shooting that rocked our nation. Several months after the incident her parents found six journals that Rachel had kept during her short life including the quote above. This thought became what is known as Rachel’s Challenge. It inspired our very own North Ridgeville Academic Center students who started Rachel’s Closet when they observed their classmates in need of supplies, clothes, and lunch money. The closet accepts donations and allows students to select what they need anonymously. They hope to start a CHAIN REACTION and we at the North Ridgeville Democratic Party want to help them do it.


This will be a virtual 5K race and 1 Mile FunWalk held between September 20th and 30th. You have ten days to pick your race, location and time to complete your event. All profits go to the Students at the North Ridgeville Academic Center for their use in the operation of the Closet. Be part of the Chain Reaction!


If you would like to submit your 5K time when you are finished, please email it to Adam at apetrovic@hermescleveland.com and he will post it online!
