Why run? Well, not only is it a good form of exercise, but your supporting a really good cause. In an article on student dropouts by salary.com, it is estimated that 2.8 million new students enroll in higher education every year. “Of this number, only one in five students who enroll in an associate’s degree program graduate in three years, and two in five who enroll in a four-year plan graduate in six years. Students who face paying for tuition themselves may not be able to afford the tuition for extra years.” So as you see, paying for college is a big responsibility for these young students. It is essential that they be provided the means to complete their education. By joining this race, you can make a difference in a students life by assisting them with their financial difficulties.
