2019 marks the ten-year anniversary of UCHS. In keeping with one of its core tenets, Servant Leadership, UCHS has started the 1st Annual UCHIGHditarod, a shopping cart race to collect non-perishable food for Catawba County modeled after the Alaskan Iditarod Race. 13% of Catawba County is food insecure; they are not sure where their next meal comes from.  This translates to 20,000 people in Catawba County alone; a staggering 22.7% are children.

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we are partnering with local food banks to raise money and awareness of the hunger needs in our own community. 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 celebrates a Decade of Excellence in 2019 and 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 celebrate a Decade of Excellence and pull together to combat community hunger. We appreciate your sponsorship helping us Take a Bite Out of Hunger!
