This course takes you through the historic East Stuart neighborhood. All registration fees will support the work of the Martin County NAACP, a branch of the nation's largest and oldest civil rights organization. This vital community organization works on a local level to carry out the mission of securing the political, educational, social, and economic equality and rights of all persons and to eliminate racial hatred and racial discrimination. This year, our annual race is honoring Ms. Gloria McHardy; a caring educator, an accomplished pianist, a vigorous freedom fighter, and an active member of her congregation & community for 60 years.
