5k for JA - Junior Achievement of Central Carolinas

5k for ja

JA Event: 5k for JA
On Saturday, April 21 Junior Achievement of Central Carolinas is hosting the 2nd Annual 5K for JA in Camp North End, just Northeast of Uptown. 
We have partnered with the national 401K Race for Financial Fitness, to make the event bigger and better! We'll have a certified 5K race followed by a Family Fun Run (<1 mile). The race will start and finish in the North End's newest hot spot - the Boiler Yard at Camp North End off Statesville Avenue.

Join a team, start a team, run as an individual, and/or donate to a team. 
Plan to stick around after the race for a WellABration to follow! We have lots of excitement planned for you and your entire family. Fun, food trucks, entertainment, interactive games, a kids' zone, awards ceremony and much more ... all to benefit JA programs!
