Library takes strides to better itself

September 9, 2013 by  

Open to all ages and fitness levels, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library seeks Charlotte’s attendance at its 4th Annual Rock & Read Run/Walk taking place later this week.

Full of activities and featuring several tiers of races, participating families are sure to have a blast. Bands line the course, positioned each mile, to entertain the participants and those supporting the event. Rock & Read features a fun zone for children and music and competition for all ages. Prizes are available to top finishers in all categories and proceeds directly benefit Charlotte’s Public Library System.

The Rock & Read needs the assistance of local organizations to ensure it can reach a $30,000 funds goal. Businesses can sponsor the event, as well as work with print companies to ensure all of Charlotte knows it is coming soon. Flyer printing is one way to suit the Rock & Read’s festive environment, and it allows many pieces to distribute throughout the course.

Participants can pick up their packet on Friday, September 13 from between 11:00 am to 2:00 pm or 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm at Omega Sports on 4271-B Park Road, Charlotte, North Carolina 28209. Alternatively, participants may register on race day Saturday, September 14, from 6:45 am to 7:45 am at the venue itself.

The 4th Annual Rock & Read Run/Walk opens at 6:00 am for volunteer check-in with the race commencing at 8:00 am. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Library at Plaza Midwood hosts the event at 1623 Central Avenue, Charlotte, North Carolina 28205. Volunteers and sponsors can register their interest through the library’s website.
