Over 1,500 people ran online for the 2021 Let’s Run charity run, which took place at 8 pm each night from 9/21 to 9/30. This year’s run concluded with a Live concert on 10/1 by Heavenly Melody; over 500 people watched the concert.
Studio Classroom Founder Dr. Doris Brougham shared: “I am thrilled to attend Let’s Run charity runs for the past 8 years. Thank you, friends for joining our run online this year and hope you continue to run with us next year to support these kids in need.”
James Shia, Secretary-General of the Chinese Christian Relief Association, thanked participants: “Thank you for attending our event, which was held in a creative way due to the pandemic this year. Thank you for caring for these kids in need. May God bless you with His love, joy and peace.”
Now in its 8th year, Let’s Run is an annual run jointly sponsored by Studio Classroom, the Chinese Christian Relief Association (CCRA), and Traveler, to raise funds for CCRA’s 1919 after school classes for kids from low-income families. Since 2004, 1919 have provided free after school classes for kids from low-income families around the island. These classes teach English, the arts, character education, and provide free meals. Over 55,000 kids attended these classes in the past 17 years. This year’s run supported 2,500 kids.
