"And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us"

The "Jace Race" is in memory of Jace Carrico, a nine-year old boy from New Sharon who fought a brain tumor for five years with strength and perseverance. Jace passed away on August 19th, 2008. The North Mahaska Education Foundation, a non-profit organization, seeks to honor Jace’s memory and help the children of the New Sharon community in numerous ways, such as individual needs in the school and classroom settings, and an annual fine arts-based assembly through the Jace Race. Jace had a special place in his heart for this community and for the people who poured out their love and support to him and his family.
