Thanks to everyone that came out to support the school. Plus those that donated & sponsored!



On December 15, 2019, Humboldt Educare and Arcata Main Street will be hosting the 4th annual Ugly Holiday Sweater Run. 


The Christmas themed run consists of a 1 mile run/walk and a 5K run that begins and ends at the Arcata Marsh. Both runs will be looping around various beautiful ponds.


Bikes, skateboards, and scooters will not be allowed (strollers are OK!). 


Make sure and wear your ugliest holiday sweater.  Prizes will be given for the β€œUgliest Sweaters.”
