Proceeds benefit Character Counts Mid Shore’s (non – profit 501(c)(3) organization)
Established in 1998, Character Counts Mid Shore, Inc. is a non-profit education organization that fosters positive character development through citizen-driven character enrichment programs to students in grades K-12 in Talbot, Dorchester, and Caroline Counties in Maryland. Our highly trained volunteers, called Character Coaches, reach over 8,500 children each year in 26 schools with age-appropriate lessons based on the Six Pillars of Character: Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. The continuous support from all of our wonderful riders enable us to continue to guide our youth on a path towards good character and positive life choices. This not only enables CCMS to provide lesson materials, resources, and ongoing training sessions for all our volunteers but also allows the Character Coaches to reach students every week during the school year. CCMS receives no funds from the Government or the schools it serves.
Join us and help support our youth programs creating tomorrow’s leaders, today!
