May 8th @ S. Tryon/Trade St: Uptown, Charlotte – 6:30PM

Who says you can’t shake things up in a city? Where does it say you can’t create awareness whenever AND wherever you choose? How is today different than yesterday or any other day for that matter in Uptown Charlotte?

To the best of my knowledge, as we launch our 4th 5K for $5K Run/Walk Challenge, I have never known any group to organize a 5K up and down South Tryon in such a confined area of space. That is all about to change at 6:30PM when runners/walkers alike come together in support for PPA awareness.

I am going to do my best to be out on the corner of South Tryon/Trade St. around 5PM promoting THE CAUSE. ANYONE and EVERYONE are welcome to join: RUNNERS, WALKERS, CHILDREN AND PETS! I have been looking forward to this 5K for the last 10 days and can only fathom the positive impact it will create with on-lookers.

The 5K route – We are meeting on the corner of South Tryon/Trade St. which is located in the heart of Uptown, Charlotte in an effort to have fun and create awareness for PPA. We will take a continuous “box-shaped” loop on South Tryon heading up to 7th street, crossing the street and back down to 2nd street. We will run/walk on South Tryon 6 times total (3 up and 3 down), finishing back at South Tryon/Trade St., exactly 3.1 miles later.

One VERY important note about this 5K –  We will run/walk solely on the sidewalks being mindful of each and every crosswalk since there will be cars and buses driving all around. This isn’t a race and we don’t want anyone getting hurt.
