Run, Superman, Run!

We had an amazing 5-K fundraiser race to benefit our network of charter schools. Not only did many members of our community show up for the run, but the Superhero Community laced up their sneakers, too. Check out the “Defenders of Education,” as they race around Ohio City to raise money for our schools:
