WHY WE RACE
We are thrilled to announce that, for the second year in a row, we will be donating all profits directly to The Move for Jenn Foundation. This foundation offers grants in the form of activewear prosthetics to individuals who have lost a limb to sarcoma or other affiliated diseases. Since these sports prosthetics are not considered medically necessary by most insurance companies, this foundation acts as a bridge, enabling amputees to return to the physical activities they enjoyed prior to amputation. We are proud to support such a noble (and NC local!) cause and hope that this initiative will make a positive difference in someone’s life.
The trail at Wake Med Soccer Park has a running surface with grass and gravel and follows a partially shaded trail through a wooded area. A water station will be at the halfway point. The 1-Mile Fun Run starts at 8:00am and the 5k starts at 8:30am. This is a sanctioned USA Track & Field event with chip timing provided. See map here.
