2nd Annual TarHeel Challenge Academy Run/Walk-A-Thon (5k Run/Walk and Virtual)

We here at Tarheel Challenge Academy would like to encourage your participation in collecting donations for the Class 60 Walk-a-Thon.

The Walk-a-Thon is a vital part of the program and the donations collected are used to pay for graduation related activities (Activity Day, Military Ball, Graduation gifts).  In the past we have had overwhelming support from our parents and community in collecting donations. We would like to continue this tradition and say thank you in advance!

What is TARHEEL Challenge Academy?

To provide intervention and reclamation for 16-18 year old high school at-risk youth, produce program graduates with the values, life skills, education, and self-discipline necessary to succeed as productive citizens.
