Sign up now for the James Island Connector Run, happening October 28, 2017! This is a fun 10K or 5K run/walk race with an amazing after-party at Triangle! This race benefits the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation (GKF), a 509 (a)(2) public charity established to help students with disabilities reach their secondary educational goals. Proceeds from the Charleston James Island Connector Run benefit the Gavalas Kolanko Foundation (GKF), a local charity that awards annual scholarships to students with physical disabilities. By awarding scholarship assistance to students each year, the GKF helps make “Education Within Reach" for South Carolina undergraduates pursuing a college education despite physical limitations. Since 1999, the Foundation has raised more than $800,000 and awarded 134 scholarships to Lowcountry students attending College of Charleston, Charleston Southern University, The Citadel, Trident Technical College, the Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC), and the Art Institute of Charleston.

This is one of CBR's favorite Charleston races and all participants receive a medal! We also have a special CBR discount code that gets you $5 off your registration. You must register with team CBR and please message us (via FB or e-mail) to receive the code.
