Description

_ The 2022 Jace Race:

On Saturday, June 11th of this year, the 14th annual "Jace Race" will take place with the option to participate in person or virtually and hopefully in conjunction with New Sharon's annual Spring Festival.  The N.M.E.F. "Jace Race" is in memory of Jace Carrico, a nine-year old boy from New Sharon who fought a brain tumor for five years with strength and perseverance.  Jace had a special place in his heart for this community and for the people who poured out their love and support to him and his family.  Jace’s love has continued to show through this race. 

The profits of the race go to North Mahaska Education Foundation, which will be used to help the children of the New Sharon community in numerous ways, such as individual needs in the school and classroom settings, and an annual fine art-based assembly.   The foundation has most recently provided funds to support field trips, a sound system for our auditorium, supported the live streaming system, technology, new classroom libraries and many other resources for classrooms with the proceeds from past races.  They have also supported the Industrial Arts program and  paired with the Cargill Cares Foundation to provide ping pong tables for P.E. and new desks for classrooms.  Each year we offer a Fine Arts Scholarship to students in North Mahaska Speech, Drama, and Art  programs.
