On top of that, some students organized a large charity run on Saturday. Like their classes, Saturday's event had to go virtual this year.
Cheryl Phillips of Carolina for the Kids is getting used to talking with people via Zoom.
"We have done a lot of Zoom meetings, a lot of Zoom meetings," Phillips said.
"It has definitely been a challenging year," Phillips said.
"I think that was never an option because the work that we do is really important," Phillips said.
Since the event was virtual, participants could run and raise money where they were. Their socially-distanced runs could be seen online.
Phillips said going virtual seems to have expanded the reach of this year's run. There were race entries from New York, Pennsylvania and Kansas.
"I have friends in Mississippi who are running the event, and we have families from all over who can participate with us," Phillips said. "We have just been adapting and trying to roll with the punches."
