The group ran this year in honor of Sgt. Wittman who was the first combat causality of 2013 in Afghanistan. His classmates have endowed a scholarship in his honor at the Citadel and ran to raise money for the fund!
Special thanks to Christine Osborne, of Wonder Works who always infuses her special brand of "magic" to make the Kids Run & Wonderfest so special for everyone! This year, her team developed field trip race competitions for more than 700 Charleston School District children!
This year was bigger than ever with so many youngsters engaged in fun and learning about the importance of the healthy lifestyle. All the young racers had hearts full of determination and spirit.
