All of the proceeds go towards the Interfaith fund for aiding homeless families.
“The proceeds will go to the charity itself to fund what it needs to provide as many families with aid from homelessness. As well as creating space to shelter and provide basic supplies and furniture,” said, Kings graduate and current Interfaith volunteer Christy Hudgel
Volunteers for this run are needed and welcome to be a part of this event, to celebrate friends and family on Independence day.
“I volunteered at IHN, I enjoyed the interactions between families,” Hudgel said. “There was a strong sense of community throughout the entire organization. Really cool culture to be a part of.”
Awards will be given as well for categories such as Best Time Female, Best Time Male, and School With Most Participants.
