McKenzie’s Run Helps Teen With College Dreams

Darius B.
The 13th Annual McKenzie’s Run will help create great futures for local young people like longtime Boys & Girls Club member Darius B., who credits his 12-year experience at McKenzie’s Beaches Boys & Girls Club with helping him become the man he is today. Darius is a graduating senior at Fletcher High School with plans to attend North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University to study mechanical engineering.

He has attended the Beaches Boys & Girls Club since he was in first grade and praises Club programs like Passport to Manhood for helping him navigate life’s challenges and make healthy, positive choices. As a result of his growing leadership role within the Club, Darius earned the opportunity to serve as a junior staff member at McKenzie’s Beaches Boys & Girls Club over the summer.

By running or walking at the 13th Annual McKenzie’s Run on Nov. 19, community members can help invest in the great futures of these local young people. This popular, family-friendly 5K and 1-mile fun run is expected to draw more than 1,000 people to help create great futures for local kids and teens. Register to run or simply donate at
