A fun event to collect food and raise money for the homeless in Huntsville

This past Saturday, a group from the local chapter of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) came together to support CARTS4HEARTS Adventure 5k:  A loose parody of a famous Alaskan dog sled race.  Replace the dogs with people and the sleds with shopping carts, add in team themes, costumes, contests and a food and fundraising drive for Huntsville’s Downtown Rescue Mission.

AIAA collected food, clothing and money for the event, created an awesome space-themed shopping cart and landed in 2nd place!  Several of our ERC ESSSA employees championed this effort, to include Tom Giel, Naveen Vetcha and Gilda Ham-Battista.

Here are some pictures from the event:  what fun!
