This year, the CMC Education Foundation was selected by the Clarksville Running Club as the local non-profit organization to benefit from their 11th Annual Wilma Rudolph 5K-10K Road Race. The race was held Saturday, June 25 at Sango United Methodist Church. Foundation staff, board members and Leadership CMCSS class members served as volunteers during the race, handing out water and Gatorade to runners at one of the three water stops along the course. Of the participants, 80 completed the 10K race and 130 completed the 5K race. Proceeds from the race totaled more than $3,000. These funds will be used in support of various CMC Education Foundation programs.
