All proceeds will go directly to their campaign, particularly a project benefiting a branch of the organization in Ecuador. The race will be put on by the Orange High School Peace Club.

October is the National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Let’s make a difference in the life of the abused and neglected women and children in NC by participating in this fundraising event for Tokens of Care, a charitable nonprofit organization, that delivers hope by visiting and providing gifts to the women and children at the Family Violence and Rape Crisis Centers, at Women’s shelters and at Children’s Homes.
Saturday, Oct. 3rd in Pittsboro, NC. 5K Run/Walk No to Domestic Violence
Usually on the first Sunday of each month we offer a 5K time trial option. As it is the first Sunday of July coincides with the Holiday weekend, we will move the TT out a week to Sunday July 12th. Members, please come out and take part, or you can run the usual 2, 4 or 6 mile route. See you there.
Join us for a great family event. There will be a 5k race with chip timing. We will also have a one mile Fun Run/Walk and a Toddler Trot for the little ones. Runners in the 5k will compete for over 100 trophies. All participants in the One Mile event (adults and children) will receive a medal. After the race please stay for some tasty refreshments. During the award ceremony we will have a drawing for prizes. Child care will be provided while parents run the 5K. The event will be held, rain or shine! No refunds! Instead of t-shirts, this year all participants in both races will receive a goody bag containing a unique ‘got grit?’ race cap and Hanteen. We love young runners…..all school-age youth, ages 6-19, can run in the competitive 5K for only $15.00. Profits from the race go for grit awards and scholarships for Orange County students.
