Description

The 4th annual School Spirit Run for Niger is a family friendly 5K run/walk through the beautiful James Island County Park trails. It is a morning of friendly competition between schools as well as a celebration of education in the lowcountry and in Niger, Africa.

Proceeds from the event will go directly toward the construction of a school in Niger, Africa, one of the most impoverished nations in the world.
