Innovate Academy is a private Christian, Classical school in Chadds Ford, PA.  Our mission is to engage scholars through a head, heart, and hands approach to learning in order to shape thoughtful, passionate, and entrepreneurial leaders of culture.  Our belief is every child is a Culture Maker and can create good in the world!  50% of the proceeds for the race will benefit Innovate Academy and the other 50% will support Water is Basic, an organization that provides clean drinking water to individuals and families living in poverty in South Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Take a look at this beautiful read aloud for children about water:

Students from the Culture Makers Club will be selling lemonade and cookies at the race with all proceeds going to the school and charity.  It'll be a great time!!
