charleston affordable housingEvery year, the Charleston School of Law holds Race Judicata, a 5K run/walk to benefit SC Community Loan Fund and we really appreciate it! This year’s event will be held Saturday, March 24 at 8 a.m. in beautiful Hampton Park in downtown Charleston.

Race Judicata is a great way to get a little exercise in a family-friendly environment, as well as support our organization. Thanks to the overwhelming support from local organizations, and the racers, Charleston’s Race Judicata has raised more than $40,000 since 2007 to benefit CLF.

If you’d like to join in the fun, there’s still time to register.

CLF also is giving away a free entry to the race when we reach 300 friends on our Facebook page. Check it out, become our friend by clicking “like” and maybe you’ll be the lucky winner!

If you’re not familiar with SC Community Loan Fund, we are a local 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission of building vibrant, sustainable communities by increasing the availability of affordable housing and to act as a catalyst to meet the fundamental needs of underserved neighborhoods.

Come down to the race to learn more about our organization and what we do. Your participation in the race is very much appreciated and will be rewarded not only with a sense of community, but plenty of bagels, bananas and water, too. J
