Character Counts Mid-Shore, Inc. is sponsoring the 9th annual Six Pillars Century cycling fundraiser on Saturday, May 6, 2017 at Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, MD. The cycling event will include three ride choices, including a 37-mile fun and fitness ride, a 56-mile Ironman Eagleman 70.3 Course, and a 100-mile Century Course.
The event will support our Winners Walk Tall Program that we provide to over 8,200 students in the public schools in Talbot, Caroline and Dorchester counties at no cost to taxpayers or schools. Trained volunteers, known as Character Coaches, visit classrooms each week to deliver lessons based on the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring and Citizenship. For 19 years, character lessons have had a positive impact on the behavior of youth in the schools on the Mid Shore.
