1st Annual West Carter Crusade
Olive Hill, KY
The West Carter Crusade 5k Run & Walk presented by WCMS 7th grade Beta was developed to support students in our community in need. This year we are crusading for Caleb Barker, a 7th grade student at WCMS with proceeds going to aid him in his battle against Batten disease. Batten disease is a disorder of the nervous system, which causes progressive loss of sight and motor skills among other symptoms. This disease is aggressive and rare occurring in an estimated 2 to 4 of every 100,000 children.
Our 5k is a fun, healthy and kid friendly event catering to runners, health walkers and families who seek to raise their heart rates and have the heart to support a noble cause.
The race starts and ends at West Carter Middle School in Olive Hill on May 17, 2014.

Life's a Hike, One Trail at a Time
Date(s): 4/2/2014, 4/5/2014, 4/9/2014, 4/12/2014, 4/16/2014, 4/19/2014, 4/23/2014, 4/26/2014, 4/30/2014, 5/3/2014
Charleston Montessori’s community spring hike series, “Life’s a Hike… One Trail at a Time,” begins April 2 with the Sunrise Carriage Trail in South Hills. The ten hikes are an annual program of Charleston Montessori School, allowing students, families and community members to join together for exercise and enjoyment of the outdoors.
“Charleston has an abundance of resources for outdoor recreation and the trails are an important component,” said school director Paige Payne. “Montessori philosophy emphasizes the need for children to have opportunities playing outside and discovering nature. We integrate these components into our daily learning, but the hikes allow for an extended classroom and expanded participation by the community. The power of nature as a teacher, combined by the physical activity and teamwork of hiking, is a win for all of us.”
This is the third year for “Life’s a Hike” and both community sponsors and partners have signed on to participate. “The series brings us together as a community for exercise, but also gives us a chance to make a difference for others,” explained Payne. Hikers will be encouraged to bring items to the trailheads for designated non-profits, including Covenant House, Read Aloud WV, the Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association, the YWCA and others. Specific donations will be posted on the school’s Facebook page prior to each hike.
For the first time, hikes will be held on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Previous hike series had been held on ten consecutive Saturdays. The Kanawha City Bike Trail (April 19), Kanawha Boulevard Walk at Lunch Day (April 30), and the CCC Snipe Trail at Kanawha State Forest (May 3) are accessible for strollers and wheelchairs.
“We are excited that the City of Charleston and the West Virginia Power have teamed up for Power 150, also beginning in April,” said Payne. “Life’s a Hike is a great opportunity to meet the Mayor’s challenge of 150 miles in 150 days and enjoy some of Charleston’s natural beauty. We hope to see a lot of Power 150 participants on the trails.”
A complete schedule is below. For more information on “Life’s a Hike,” please contact Charleston Montessori School at (304) 340-9000. A detailed schedule is also available on the school’s website, http://www.charlestonmontessori.com/community-service/lifes-a-hike.

The Alice Knight Trail at Coonskin Park entrance is adjacent to the first large parking area on the right across from a large field and playground after entering the park. This is a challenging trail but a beautiful one! There are sections of the trail that are narrow, rocky and depending on the weather, wet. Proper hiking shoes/boots are recommended. There is a waterfall about halfway into this trail. Kanawha Valley Radiology is the sponsor for this hike and Kanawha Trail Club is the community sponsor.
