The MCPS Athletic Directors have partnered together to promote 25 important charitable causes over 25 days. Each Athletic Director will be donating $1 to each charitable cause, and promoting all of the organizations. Our goal is to see how far $1 can go!
Saturday, April 25th is Blake’s Day of Giving! We are supporting Ben’s Run, a local charity that helps fund ground-breaking research at Children’s National Hospital.
April 25th was the original date for Ben’s Run 2020. The Run has been rescheduled for October due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. This postponement gives us more opportunity to fundraise and donate!
If you would like to learn more about Ben, or the run named in his memory, visit www.bensrun.org.
