2017 Race For The ARK


We cannot thank you, our faithful supporters, enough for making our 18th Annual Thrivent Financial Race For The ARK a wonderful success. With beautiful weather, we had 595 registered runners and walkers that completed the course. This year, was a record year for The ARK! We raised over $37,000 to benefit families living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia throughout the Lowcountry. With these funds we are able to continue providing respite care, support groups and education classes. We look forward to making next year’s 19th Annual Race For The ARK even better!

Thank you to all of our 2017 SponsorsThrivent Financial
