1st Annual CCBS Trail 5K

Trail 5K a Blazing Success

Cherokee Creek Boys School, a top therapeutic boys school in Westminster, SC, recently organized, publicized and administrated the 1st Annual CCBS Trail 5K on 1st Annual Trail 5K at Cherokee Creek Boys Schoolthe grounds of the campus. The mission of the school for middle school-aged students is to “challenge boys and their families to discover what is real and true about themselves and the world around them.” The words in this mission statement is dutifully and daily practiced by CCBS staffers and students, whether they are on campus or out in the community. The Trail 5K was a huge challenge for the school, but one in which they were up to taking, and one in which they were successful in helping make a difference in themselves and in the community around them.

The Cherokee Creek Boys School Trail 5K originated because several of the students wanted to find a fun way to raise money to give back to the local community. They thought of a couple of local charities, but one really stood out to them… Dot’s Kitchen. Students at CCBS volunteer at Dot’s Kitchen in Westminster every month. Volunteering at Dot’s has given the boys so much joy by helping serve a free lunch to those in the community who are less fortunate.

1st Annual Trail 5K at Cherokee Creek Boys SchoolAfter the starter’s gun went off, 29 runners faced the challenging, rigorous trail. As each runner successfully navigated the course and crossed the finish line, there was a wonderful, uplifting atmosphere filled with cheering. In talking with many of the runners after the race, the common theme from the experience was that the course was “a blast to run”.
