Welcome to the inaugural year for the Hope and a Future Run!
Please join us for the Hope and a Future 1K, 5K, 10K Run on March 10th, as we highlight National Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and support a school that is making a world of difference in lives of children with these disabilities, The Imago Dei School at Trinity Classical Academy.
The Imago Dei School (IDS) serves a wide variety of students by offering a hope and a future to the under-served community of special needs students in the Santa Clarita Valley. Most IDS students have been diagnosed with learning and/or developmental disabilities. Many students are also diagnosed with associated learning challenged such as ADHD, sensory processing disorder, speech and language delays and executive functioning disorder. The commonality between all of our students is that they learn best in a specialized learning environment with individualized attention. The Imago Dei School is the only classical Christian special education school in the nation, and is setting the standard for Christian special education.
Profits from our event will go towards scholarship opportunities for children with developmental disabilities in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Volunteers will be located along the path in order to direct participants and cheer them on. One water station will be out on the path for refreshments. Start and finish for 5K and 10K races will be at West Creek Park.
The 1K fun run course will take place at West Creek Park only, with the guidance of many fun volunteers and staff! The route will primarily be concrete sidewalks and grass.
Awards will be given for first, second, and third place male or female finishers in the 5k and 10k races individually.
