About This Activity

RACE FOR THE KIDS 10K TRAIL AND 5K ROAD RACE:

On September 12, 2015, the Boys and Girls Club of the Piedmont (BGCP) will host the first Annual Race for the Kids 10K Trail and 5K Road Race. Both races will take place in the beautiful Lake Norman State Park, located on the banks of Lake Norman, the largest manmade lake in North Carolina. The BGCP believes in enabling all young people, especially those who need them most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, and responsible citizens. Started in 2009, the BGCP now helps 313 children in their afterschool program and 250 children in their summer program every year. The BGCP provides an outlet for children to express themselves through dance, music, art, gardening and sports. In addition, the BGCP provides tutoring and educational support to help each child reach their full potential academically.
