Thank You for Helping to Make the 17th Annual CPCC Charlotte Skyline Run a Success

With an expanded venue, the race was one of the most exciting events in Charlotte on April 28th.

Terrence Bates of Fox News got everyone pumped up and ready to run. Post race, the  21 onsite sponsor-vendors  enticed the runners and their family members with food, product displays, activities and wonderful prizes. The bounce house kept many of the little ones busy and happy pre and post-race.

A huge thank you to the presenting sponsor- Northwestern Mutual- and all the other wonderful sponsors. Of course without our runners/walkers there wouldn't be a race! Thank you as well. And to our volunteers- you were awesome!

Thank you  all and get ready for next year!
