2019 marked the ten-year anniversary of UCHS, and in keeping with one of its core tenets, Servant Leadership, UCHS held its inaugural UCHIGHditarod, a shopping cart race to collect non-perishable foods for Catawba County modeled after the Alaskan Iditarod Race. This year, the mission continues!

Almost 13% of Catawba County’s citizens are food insecure; they are not certain of how or when their next meal will be provided. This translates to more than 20,000 people in Catawba County alone; a staggering 22.7% are children. Please help UCHS students and supporters pull together and race to combat community hunger. Along with the non-perishable groceries, 50% of proceeds raised will go to local food banks in need and 50% will go to UCHS. 

UCHS has set down roots in Catawba County.  We are a school community where every student is able to unlock their potential.  We will continue to offer a strong academic education in a Christian environment with your support. Funds raised will support classroom enrichment, building enhancements and a variety of other improvements at the school.  All donations are tax deductible.

Please help UCHS students and supporters pull together to combat community hunger. We appreciate your sponsorship helping us Take a Bite Out of Hunger!
