Do you want to kick some asphalt for charity? Run like a rock star? Meet some new friends? How about doing all that while supporting two great local organizations – The Rotary Club of Lake Norman-Huntersville and Little Smiles? Then join us in Birkdale at 8:30 a.m. on August 27, 2016 for Rock ‘n Run 5K/10K benefiting Little Smiles.
There are two ways to register: before the race online at http://www.lakenormanrotary.org/rotaryrocknrun up until August 25th at 5:30 p.m. EST; or at the event on race morning beginning at 7:30 a.m. Your race experience will include live music and prizes for the top finishers.

Proceeds from the run will benefit children in local hospitals and provide gifts to local families at Christmas, raise funds to support the Huntersville Veteran’s Memorial, collect food for low income students, and much more.
