James Island Connector "Home Edition"

James Island Connector 'Home Edition" 10K/5K
The 22nd James Island Connector 10K & 5K “Home Edition” Run/Walk
The Charleston James Island Connector Run is Charleston’s premier 5K / 10K event that serves and
honors students with disabilities with a family-oriented run which promotes fitness, builds community
awareness and ultimately funds college scholarships for students with physical disabilities.
Wait…. Did you say “Home Edition“?
Yes we did. With the only certainty being that we cannot predict the outcome of the current pandemic with COVID-19, this year’s race is a challenging one to plan. We love this cause and want to make sure we raise enough funds to support the recipients of this year’s
GKF Scholarships. This year’s event will be virtual. When we opened up registration originally we informed you that you had a choice of registering for a Virtual 10K / 5K or for Physical 10K / 5K.
This year’s event will be a 5K / 10K that you complete between October 24th and October 31st, 2020.
You choose the time and place (following local social distancing guidelines) on any of those days to complete a 5K / 10K your way!
Once completed upload your results through the link that is provided to see how you ranked against everyone else.
Despite the challenges we are all experiencing right now, one thing that remains constant is our commitment to the Charleston James Island Connector Run.
We know that you share our commitment to the CJICR and would love for you to particpate in the “Home Edition” 5K / 10K and join the local community in honoring students with disabilities by supporting the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation.
Please make sure to tag us with your on your favorite social media and the hashtag #2020CJICRHomeEdition
