What is the Valor 5K Challenge?

The 5K Challenge is a celebration of Christian education and the Avail community of friends, alumni, parents, and students coming together to support students, teachers, and staff at Avail's three campuses. All money raised from the event support Avail Academy.


The race is a 5K course around Lake Harriet in south Minneapolis. Registering to run or walk is totally free! We want to see as many runners and walkers as possible come out and participate in our unique event. Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution here to help ensure the vibrant future of Avail Academy. 


Students come to Avail Academy with a wide range of abilities, talents, and interests, each uniquely gifted to serve God in His world. Your generous gifts are an investment that will be multiplied in the lives of our students... throughout this year and wherever God calls them to serve him in the future. Thank you for your support.
