Family Fun Event: Rock 'N Read 5K






Looking for a great way to incorporate exercise, music, family time AND help Charlotte Mecklenburg Library programs?!?!?  Well the Rock and Read 5K is your one stop shop!!!  There is a 5K, 1 mile race and a kid's dash.  Oh and when have you ever been able to register for a 5K for only $20?!?!?  If you register by Friday, August 8, the 5K registration is $20, 1 miler is $10 and the kids dash is $5.

The Rock and Read 5K is going to be held on September 6, 2014 at the Plaza Midwood Branch of the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library (1623 Central Ave, Charlotte, NC 28205). There will be a 1 Mile Fun Run and a Kids' Dash as well. At each mile marker there will be live music by local bands, hence the rock part ;). At the finish line, there will be an atmosphere of more live music, food, and beverages (so far beer from Triple C Brewing Company is being donated).
Our goal is to raise $25,000 which will go toward supporting the Charlotte Mecklenburg Library programs and services. The website for the event ishttp://foundation.cmlibrary.org/rockandread if you would like more information.

Oh and stay tuned because we will be giving away a registration!!!! Yaaay, who doesn't love a giveaway?!?!
