The fifth event of 2018 was the Royal 10k. Dumbledore wasn’t the only one who had “style”.

The future Minister for Magic was a critical member of the Order of the Phoenix, Kingsley Shacklebolt! One of the greatest Aurors ever, he helped keep Sirius’ location a secret from the Ministry, saved the members of the DA during the Battle of the Dept of Mysteries, and bravely fought at the Battle of Hogwarts. After Voldemort came to power, he went into hiding, but remained active in the resistance effort, contributing to the Potterwatch radio broadcast under the alias Royal.

Kingsley Shacklebolt showed us that with strong leadership skills, determination, and courage you can change the world! Hogwarts Running Club is pleased to announce the charity partner for this event is All Star Code! All Star Code is a nonprofit computer science education organization focused on giving young, intelligent, driven men of color access to the necessary skills so they can be part of the growing tech world. HRC’s goal was to help All Star Code fund an entire “cohort” of 20 young men of color so they can complete the Summer Intensive Program in 2019.

We are pleased to inform the world that the Royal 10k event raised $59,561.49 to benefit All Star Code.
