“What an amazing event,” said Mark Stelter, professor of criminal justice at LSC-Montgomery and co-advisor of The Mission. “They raised over $10,000 for the orphanages in Nepal and India! What an incredible student success story!
After two months of planning, a great deal of advertising, and attendance at the run of over 300 people, the event was a huge success.
The money raised from this event will help build underfunded orphanages for children rescued from human trafficking in India and Nepal.
The Mission, a student organization at Lone Star College-Montgomery, and Illuminate Nations surpassed their fundraising goal of $10,000 for underfunded orphanages in India and Nepal, thanks to the Illuminate 5k run on Saturday, October 11.
