A check for the proceeds from the 2011 Winter Flight 8K Road Race was presented to representatives of Rowan Helping Ministries on Tuesday at the agencyís office. David Abernathy, treasurer of the Salisbury Rowan Runners, made the presentation to Kyna Foster, executive director and Cam Campbell, director of resource development and community relations. The check was for $6,000. The Salisbury Rowan Runners have donated to Rowan Helping Ministries on multiple occasions during the last few years.
ěWinter Flight is the oldest and highest profile road race in Salisbury. It just makes sense that we partner with RHM. They provide many of the volunteers for the race, and we have a great working relationship. This is the third consecutive year that SRR has given the Winter Flight proceeds to RHM,î said Abernathy.
Campbell is a member of Salisbury Rowan Runners and was also the volunteer coordinator for the event.
Major sponsors for the race were Rowan Regional Hospital, Cornerstone Church, Cheerwine, Marathon Business Center, Vac and Dash of Albemarle, Unity Presbyterian Church, Dr. James Jolly, Dr. Kathy Boyd, Pancho Villaís Mexican Restaurant, Pinocchioís, Civitans of Salisbury, Catawba College, the Salisbury Post, city of Salisbury, and HICAPS.
