Message from I Can, We Will founder and Director: 

My name is Jay Geddie, Founder and Director of I Can, We Will a 501 (c)3 Non-profit orginization.
It is almost July again, and that means, it is time for our 5th Annual, Empowering Lifestyles Weekend 5K!
Last year our 4th Annual Empowering Lifestyles 5K was a HUGE success! The run took place on Saturday, July 11th in Charlotte, NC. We had 152 registered runners!
As a result of your donations we were able to provide a contribution to the Trusted Parents foundation and an additional $1,500 was used help 50 underprivileged mothers in Charlotte with diapers, wipes, formula, blankets and more!
As always, 100% of the proceeds will go to charity! This year the proceeds will be used to help underprivileged families in the Charlotte area by providing at least 10 families with groceries for the month and to aid the Youth Educational Society of Charlotte (Y.E.S), a local Charlotte non-profit in helping educate and mentor the youth of our great city!
I thank you in advance for your continued support,and I have posted the link to our non-profit homepage below.
