The Blue Devils Run

Posted by Peter MUIR

An avid runner, 15-year-old Eliza Antonowich of the US state of Georgia decided to create an athletic event that also aimed to increased community spirit and funds for her schools track and field team.  She initiated the Blue Devils Run, a 5km race that not only provides participants with physical fitness activities but also volunteer opportunities.  Proceeds from the annual race benefits her teammates who are unable to afford the participation fees, uniforms, and running shoes.  A CAS/Community Engagement project example in all strands – Creativity, Action and Service.
