May 10th @ U.S. National Whitewater Center, Charlotte, NC – 6:30PM
LAST chance to “Gump it up” with Run4Papa. Literally. We have come to our 5th and final 5K for $5K Challenge and what better venue than the U.S. National Whitewater Center for a run/walk amongst supporters of THE CAUSE! This is by far my favorite destination in all of Charlotte because there are so many fun activities from whitewater rafting to rock climbing, biking to trail hiking and much more! Of course, we are going to be hosting the 5K run/walk tonight, but afterwards, there will be a band playing from 7-9PM. This event is completely kid and pet friendly and ANYONE and EVERYONE are welcome and encouraged to participate.
As promised, we have continued to run/walk a 5K every other day until $5K is raised. Through your generosity and willingness to spread the word, the amount of $5 donations thus far have been remarkable. We are SO close to achieving not only the $5K goal set forth 10 short days ago, but also, our overall goal of $50,000! I am confident we will hit our mark with your support for the journey this evening…
The 5K route – We are meeting at the U.S. National Whitewater Center in front of the Cafe. It is imperative that everyone show up on time, so we can introduce everyone to each other and make our way over to the Green Trail for the 5K run/walk. We will weave our way through this scenic trail covering 3.1 miles of ground.
In the case that Mother Nature has shut down the trails for any reason, we will go to our “back-up” 5K route of running/walking around the Whitewater Center rafting loop. Either way, it is a win-win for our cause and a great excuse to get together to wrap-up one of the most fulfilling 10-day periods of this campaign.
