Kinderschuhe 5K Run & Walk
New Braunfels Utilities partnered with Communities in Schools in 2004 to create Kinderschuhe 5K Run & Walk to purchase shoes for at-risk students within their school network. Since then, the annual event has become a staple in our community as citizens of all ages come out to support the cause and get some exercise!
Communities in Schools
Communities In Schools South Central Texas began more than 25 years ago by the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce to help students (grades K-12) achieve in schools, graduate, and be successful throughout their lives.
Today CIS is providing intensive and ongoing-case managed services to at-risk students across 35 schools in six school districts (New Braunfels, Marion, Comal, Luling, Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City, and Seguin). Case-managed students receive targeted services such as supportive guidance/counseling, mental health intervention, health/human services (basic life needs such as shelter, food, and clothing), tutoring, and college preparation assistance.
