Delphian School students have been a staple in the McMinnville area Habitat for Humanity Run, Walk, Ride event for the last several years. This year, our students were given more responsibility. They were asked to be in charge of the Habitat for Humanity Kids Fun Run. Their responsibilities included putting on two races to kids ten and under: a quarter-mile and an eighth of a mile race. The Delphian group was also in charge of coordinating and running different activities for the kids, including face painting, arts and crafts, potato sack races, three-legged races and more.
There were thirty seven students involved with the Habitat for Humanity Run, Walk, Ride project this year, and they all assisted in some way. As soon as participating kids started pouring in, Delphian School students were on their toes and ready to help and have fun with everyone. Delphian School students also helped in the adult races helping with route guiding on the 5K and 10K runs.
Overall, and with Delphian’s help, the McMinnville Habitat for Humanity event raised over $22,000 which can go toward funding local Habitat projects.
