It is time for our 2nd Annual Heart & Sole Fun Run! On Friday, October 6, 2023 our students will be participating in a fun run fundraiser. The Heart & Sole Fun Run helps raise money to support the programs at KairosPDX throughout the year.  Let’s support the KairosPDX leaders and see how much we can raise – as a school and as each of our classrooms. LET’S GO KAIROSPDX COMMUNITY!

How it works: In the weeks leading up to the Fun Run, each of our 15 classrooms compete as their Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) to raise the most money, recruiting family and friends to help them reach the top. The classroom that raises the most funds will be recognized at the following HBCU Assembly and throughout the year!
