The monies raised through our 5K will fund many projects and programs within the community to read about a few of our past projects (HERE). One program we particularly wish to be able to fund and like to highlight is the annual award for an outstanding senior(s) of Teens for Healthy Youth (THY). THY is LCAHY’s youth coalition and is dedicated to promoting positive teen health through peer to peer education, leadership, and service. LCAHY currently has THY programs at Bluffton High, Cross Schools, Hilton Head Christian Academy, Hilton Head High, Hilton Head Preparatory, and May River High School. We look forward to partnering with you as we strive to unite our community to invest in the health & wellness of our youth through education, community service, and the promotion of positive choices!
