Running is an exercise few people enjoy but most people do anyway, which is why some of the best charity events involve running for a cause. Not only do we feel good about ourselves but we feel good for what we accomplished for others in need. In Charlotte we have some great races benefiting great causes but when you add beer into the mix, you have a winner!
This coming June 7th at 6pm, NoDa Brewing company and OrthoCarolina will be presenting the NoDa 5k which benefits RunningWorks; a non-profit running program founded to encourage the homeless community to rediscover the power of teamwork, discipline, confidence and respect for each other one stride at a time.
You'll start and end at NoDa Brewing Company and will receive some cool giveaways, live music, free beer (21+ only), and food trucks onsite. And for the competitive runners they have the chip-timed Jaguar timing system which tracks your run time and then displays your results in the live tent.
So come on out for a good cause, great beer, and some friendly competition.
100% of the proceeds will go to a local family's 1year old son who needs eye surgery as well as other medical and therapy expenses. Money will go to this 1 family the toys donated will be taken to various family's, organizations or schools needing help for the holidays. Even if you do not want to participate on the crawl please feel free to donate.
Now on to the details of the crawl:
