New Salem Roadrunners Participate in Charity Race
On Friday, October 7 the New Salem Roadrunners participated in the Tortoise and Hair Race in Wadesboro, NC. This event was held to raise money and awareness for Alopecia Areata, a common disease that results in the loss of hair. It occurs in males and females of all ages, but onset most often occurs in childhood. Donations raised from this event will be used to fund research to improve treatment and help find a cure. Caleb Baucom, a 2nd grade New Salem student, placed 3rd in the children's 1-mile fun run.
