embRACE 5K

Thanks to all for a wonderful turnout for Presby Psych’s second annual 5k and fun run, on a chilly (but no rain this year!) Saturday morning, Nov. 20, in Clanton Road Park. We had more than 80 runners and walkers, with more than 25 volunteers to make everything go off flawlessly. Most importantly, we raised funds from 15 generous sponsors as well as a host of other supporters and donors, enabling Presby Psych to continue and expand our vital community outreach such as free and financially assisted therapy to healthcare workers and to first responders and their families. Thanks to Fox46 anchor Brien Blakely for his encore lively performance as our master of ceremonies. A highlight for the kids and young-at-heart: a fire truck from Charlotte Fire Department station 43, which had to leave briefly with lights flashing to answer a call. We can’t wait for the 2022 race!
