When 5K plus 0.0K add up to $10K

Inaugural "March 4th with United Way" a huge success

March4thOn Saturday, more than 200 neighbors from across Cabarrus County gathered to run, walk, or simply drink in support of United Way, raising nearly $10,000 for local programs.

The new event was the brainchild of local United Way board member Bill Dusch, who has run on behalf of United Way for several years. In the past, he asked people to sponsor him in a race; this year, Cabarrus Brewing Co. signed on as the event host and a new race was created, with Dusch serving as the "race director extraordinaire," as our Cabarrus community director Sarah Porter describes him.

"I think the coolest thing was how many families participated, like the 85-year-old woman who walked the 5K with her daughter," said Porter. "People really enjoyed the interesting course, which brought them past areas of Gibson Mill that most had never seen, and we had others just walk up to hang out for the 0.0K. There were participants from Concord, Kannapolis and all across the county, so it was true community-wide event."

More event pictures can be seen on our Facebook page, along with the official race gallery and the Independent Tribune's photo gallery.

Alex Griswold was the overall race winner, while winners from each age group won a Cabarrus Brewing Co. beer stein. Griswold works for DataChambers, one of the event sponsors - special thanks go out to all our sponsors who helped make the event a success!
