uly 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first humans landing on the Moon on July 20, 1969 as part of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar mission. We at Moon Joggers are super excited to celebrate this historic event with our First Man On the Moon 1 Mile, 5K, 10K, 13.1, 26.2!
We will be donating at least 15% of each registration to the Challenger Center. In the aftermath of the Challenger accident, the crew’s families came together, firmly committed to the belief that they must carry on the spirit of their loved ones by continuing the Challenger crew’s educational mission. Their efforts resulted in the creation of Challenger Center for Space Science Education. Challenger Center and its global network of Challenger Learning Centers use space-themed simulated learning and role-playing strategies to help students bring their classroom studies to life and cultivate skills needed for future success, such as problem solving, critical thinking, communication and teamwork. Challenger Center reaches hundreds of thousands of students, and tens of thousands of teachers every year.
