Events Details

Join Cairn University friends, alumni, students, faculty, staff and other supporters for the Cairn Cares 5k, Virtual 5k, and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk. The Cairn Cares 5K Run/1 Mile Walk and Virtual 5K raises money for the New Horizon Scholarship Fund at Cairn University. New Horizons is an initiative to provide support to new mothers served by crisis pregnancy resource centers, who chose to give birth, even though their educational and career goals have been interrupted by the unplanned pregnancy, delivery and parenthood. The New Horizons program provides them with Cairn scholarship dollars, academic support, and a nurturing Christian community at Cairn as they seek to renew and/or begin to pursue their undergraduate education.
