Charlotte New Year’s Day 5K
New Year’s Day 5K -- a first for Charlotte-- invites the community to get the new year started on the right foot with a fun, healthy activity for everyone! This new event features a 5K run and wellness walk along the LYNX Blue Line on N. Tryon Street in University City. .
About the Charlotte NYD5K:
Proceeds from the Charlotte NYD5K will benefit the Camino Community Center food pantry and the Jamil Niner food pantry. The more runners and walkers who register, the greater the benefit to these organizations that work daily to address food insecurity for many in our community.
Why University City?
University City is a quickly growing community in Charlotte. It’s important that as we develop, we continue to make University City a livable community for all. Food insecurity and hunger issues are not unique to University City, but our University City community is committed to doing what we can to support solutions.
This event will bring hundreds to celebrate the New Year together, while providing a fun activity to kick-start healthy new year commitments.
