This walk is organized by the Carver High National Honor Society, Carver High Ambassadors and Mu Alpha Theta (math honors society). It is being done in honor of the late Betty Hall, mother of Carver High Principal Betty Hall, who lost her battle to breast cancer a few years ago. The run/walk route will extend from the Carver High campus, through Oak Street, up to West Jeff Davis Ave, cross E.D. Nixon Avenue and return to the school.
