ENDURANCE. SACRIFICE. DEDICATION. ACCOMPLISHMENTS. These are just a few of the values that we here at FLEC try to instill in our children, and this year's race is a physical and tangible symbol of these attributes. While there are some challenges and at times obstacles for parents and students who are seeking a Christian education, we believe that such an education is the foundation for not only good citizenry but also leaders that will powerfully effect this world for good; and so with this in mind that we "RUN WITH ENDURANCE THE RACE THAT IS SET BEFORE US...' Everyone is invited to join us at the 18th annual Miriam Kittrell 5K Run/Walk to raise money for Forest Lake Education Center's Worthy Student Fund. This event is fun for the whole family.
BENEFICIARY: Race proceeds go directly to the Worthy Student Fund. Funds raised help take away barriers from families who wish to be in a Christian environment but at times struggle to afford it. FLEC is a school where children are shown kindness and what it means to be like Christ. It is in this school that children are taught to live a life of purpose.
FLEC STUDENT GOALS: Each student is encouraged to find ten sponsors at ten dollars for a total of $100 per student. Or students may find just five sponsors at twenty dollars for a total of $100.
