Children benefit from the race

The Ubumi Transit Home, Hudson’s orphanage, is being sponsored by Seton Catholic School. It provides quality care, education, and spiritual and social services to 16-20 orphans in a home-like setting. Run by Ubumi Africa, a Zambian NGO, the orphanage staff attempts to locate and place orphaned or abandoned children with their extended families. Children whose families are unable to take them will grow up at the Home. Additionally, Ubumi Africa provides free schooling, counseling, nutrition and health programming for approximately 380 children and their families in the impoverished Musonda Compound, about 1 mile from the orphanage. The Ubumi Transit Home and the work of Ubumi Africa was adopted by the City of Hudson as its global outreach in April of 2009.

The Run also benefits Berea Children’s Home for those wishing to assist local needy children. Berea Children's Home & Family Services (BCHFS) was founded in 1864 to provide a home for children orphaned by the Civil War. Today, BCHFS still provides a home for children, but their continuum of care to over 11,200 children and families has evolved to include out of home programs, early childhood and parenting services, mental health services, employment programs, family counseling programs, and juvenile justice services.

Additionally, children in orphanages in Honduras and Ghana also are beneficiaries of the Run. Also, our own children in the race get a chance to exercise in nature and are fostered in their intuitive tender concern for others who are in need.

The 5K course will be same as last year. It will start at the school, loop the property, then run one loop of the Hudson Springs Park and finish at the school. The 10K will start at the school and go directly into the park, loop three times and finish at the school. 1 Mile Kids Run same as last year, start at school, out into the park and back. We are looking at potential alternatives for the 10K route and if anything changes will keep you posted.
