Pictures & story by Mr. Topham, Communications Director

KCD became the first school in Louisville to undertake the ambitious project of raising funds to build a house for Habitat for Humanity, a non-profit organization that uses donated materials and volunteer labor to build houses for families lacking adequate shelter. By becoming a sponsor, KCD is committing to raising $25,000 by next spring and must also supply the labor to build the house. The first step of the project requires us to raise $5000 by June in order to be assigned a family. Thanks to strong community support of two events last weekend, we have already surpassed that goal by raising $6000!
Led by junior Samantha Blieden and a group of upper school students, KCD’s Habitat Project kicked off on Saturday, April 16, with the Run for Humanity. Students in all three divisions, along with many teachers and parents (below), came out to take part in a three-mile run, a 1.5-mile fun run, or a three-mile walk. The three-mile run was won by Courtney Tobe, Brandon Geer, Camden Rouben, and Dan Dorsey. Stuart Arbuckle was the winner of the 1.5-mile fun run.
