Second annual 5K Rock-‘N-Run in northeast district benefits Hope Haven on August 13th
Posted on 8 Jul 2011 by Justine Gazzola
On August 13 at 8:00 a.m., the second annual 5K Rock-‘N-Run will kick off at the NC Music Factory (1000 Seaboard Street). The event is sponsored by the NC Music Factory and North End Partners business association. This year’s 5K Rock-‘N-Run is a follow up to last year’s immensely successful inaugural race which attracted 500 runners and 1000 overall attendees and raised $4,000 on behalf of four non-profits in the Northeast district. Proceeds from this year’s race will benefit Hope Haven, Inc., a foundation that provides life skills training for homeless, chemically dependent adults and families, within a supportive residential environment, leading to independence.
The event will host live music at the finish line featuring the Swingin’ Richards, a kid’s zone sponsored by Coca-Cola Bottling Consolidated, a health and wellness pavilion, and vendors with information on healthy living. Runners, walkers and volunteers are all welcome to participate. The cost is $20 if you register prior to August 5, 2011.
