Mark your calendars for the 5K for Unity on Saturday July 17, 2021 11am at Vecino Brewing in Carrboro, North Carolina. Vecino is one of five breweries in North Carolina hosting the 5K for Unity with Together We Stand NC. Together We Stand NC has designated July 17th as a day of conversation and contemplation at your local brewery. Our local breweries are a safe space for all races and sexual orientations. Come for a social run and stay for the conversation (and of course delicious beer).
Note: This is a social 5K run/walk. There will be no timers, pace groups, or bibs. The route will be designed by the brewery/run club.
Pick up the 2021 Together We Stand NC tee, the official shirt of the 5K for Unity. The 2021 Together We Stand shirt is the 4th in a series of wearable “conversation starters”. The front of the charcoal heather shirt features our iconic TWS Bull logo and the back features the phrase “Our Lives Begin to End the Day We Become Silent About Things That Matter” (Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.). This quote was chosen because we believe justice must matter to ALL of us in order for change to occur. Each registered runner receives an event shirt (while supplies last). The deadline for early registration (to be guaranteed a shirt) is Monday June 21, 2021.
A portion of registration fees will benefit Girls on the Run of the Triangle specifically the Rosa Parks Memorial Scholarship. For more information about Girls on the Run of the Triangle, click here.
Registration for the 5K for Unity opens Monday May 17th at 5am For more information about the 5K for Unity and Together We Stand NC, visit www.togetherwestandnc.com or follow us on social media @togetherwestandnc
