The first public event to use the newly constructed Hamilton Athletic Center will be Dec. 6 at the Hamilton Education Foundation’s Charger Challenge: Santa Edition. The fun run-walk, which starts at 9 a.m. in front of Hamilton High School, finishes in the new athletic center. It is just one more reason to sign up for Charger Challenge: Santa Edition.
Promising to be an outstanding community fitness event, this magical 5K run will feature theme stations including Candy Cane Lane, Mistletoe Mile and the Gingerbread House on the grounds at Hamilton High School. Following the run, participants will get a chance to see the new Hamilton Athletic Center, which will be finished just in time for the community event.
Charger Challenge: Santa Edition is open to all athletic abilities, and families are welcome. Please go to www.hamiltoneducationfoundation.org to register. Fees are $25 for children ages 4-12 years and $35 for 13 and older. All paid participants will receive a long sleeve Dri-FIT T-shirt.

Charger Challenge: Santa Edition is one of only two major HEF fundraisers this year. Established in 1991 by friends of the Hamilton school community, the Foundation and its supporters generate funding and other resources to enhance, extend and enrich the educational opportunities of Hamilton School District students. It is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees and operates independently from the Hamilton School Board.
HEF takes great pride in providing Hamilton students and educators with tools needed in a fast-paced, ever-changing world. It has provided funding for SMART boards, digital cameras, e-readers and many educational programs and workshops.
