RUNNING TOWARDS OUR FUTURE 5K RUN/WALK & 1 MILE FUN RUN
OCTOBER 11TH AT FRANK LISKE PARK CONCORD, NC
Come run with S.W.A.G.G.A.! “There’s A Bright Future Ahead!” S.W.A.G.G.A. (Saved With A God Given Authority), the Youth Ministry of Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church of Harrisburg, NC will host their 3nd Annual “Running Towards Our Future 5K Run/Walk” on October 11th at Frank Liske Park in Concord, NC.
S.W.A.G.G.A.’s “Running Towards Our Future 5K Run/Walk” is an initiative to create a platform for healthy living throughout Oak Grove Missionary Baptist Church and the surrounding communities it serves. Last year’s race was a huge success with over one hundred registered runners and walkers that participated. Medals were provided by Concord Trophy Center, and awarded to 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners in each age division. Timing and results were handled by Phidippides Sports Center of Concord, NC. Phidippides has partnered with S.W.A.G.G.A. again this year as participation is expected to double. The ladies of Zeta Phi Beta, Psi Mu Zeta chapter have also returned to lend a hand as volunteers to encourage runners at checkpoints throughout the race.
The monies collected through participant registrations and donations will further S.W.A.G.G.A.’s ministry by assisting with their scholarship endowment, summer enrichment programs, and community service projects such as the Back to School Book Bag Drive in the Logan Community in Concord, NC and their continuous giving efforts to Samaritan’s Feet. Last year S.W.A.G.G.A. was able to award $1000 in scholarship money to 2 freshmen.
“Running Towards Our Future 5K Run/Walk” takes place at Frank Liske Park in Concord, NC on October 11th at 9 am. Sign in starts at 8:00 A.M. at the W.O. Barnhardt Shelter. This year we are doing things a little differently and will have our first Kids 1 Mile Fun Run! Healthy refreshments will be served to keep participants energized for the race. Drinks will be provided by Coca-Cola Bottling Co. Consolidated. The course is 3.1 miles and takes a route through one of the certified park trails. There will be awards and giveaways presented immediately after the race. Registration is only $20 per individual. Race Day registration is $35.

Since 2005, over $265,000 has been raised to help keep a Nurse in Every School through this annual event.
“As a Cabarrus County Medical Society Alliance member, retired nurse, golfer and community member, I have had the pleasure and honor of participating in our fund raising event for the last 10 years. School nurses are so important to our community in support of every public school student in this county, and without this tournament some child at some school may not have had a nurse available to them at a critical moment. A yearly golf tournament has been a fun and rewarding way to support that program by way of personnel or necessary supplies,” shared Mary Ellen Williams.
“Funds from previous years have been essential in purchasing medical equipment for the health offices such as recovery cots, littman stethoscopes, suretemp thermometers, pulse oximeters, welch allyn macroview otoscopes, and most recently – laptops for the implementation of the School Health Electronic Health Record,” according to Kim Ragan and Alice Luttman, School Nurse Supervisors. “These funds ensure that our students are taken care of with the best quality equipment and supplies,” Nurse Ragan continued. The group set a goal of $35,000 this year. Previous tournaments have yielded upwards of $30,000. Their hope is that teams, sponsors, and donors from previous years will return to celebrate this ten year milestone. This year the tournament will be held on Monday, October 13, 2014 at the Cabarrus Country Club. It is Captain's Choice with a shotgun start at noon. Registration is $125 per player or $400 for a 4-person team. Mulligans Packages are available for $20 per player, a Putting Contest for $10 per player and an Out of the Cup Contest for $5 per player. Sponsorships are also available and donations are welcomed! For more information, visit Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Swing4Kidz or email the group at ccmsagolf@gmail.com. The registration and sponsorship brochure is also available on the Cabarrus Health Alliance webpage: www.cabarrushealth.org.
