Run, Walk or Volunteer with Us…Central Piedmont Skyline Run on Mother’s Day Weekend

Mark your calendars for 8 a.m., Saturday, May 11, 2019, for the CPCC Skyline Run taking place on Mother’s Day weekend. CPCC students may register for the discounted price of $10, a savings of $15.

Running, walking, volunteering, and cheering on your friends and family who are participating is a great way to celebrate the end of the spring semester! This particular race is a great way to honor all moms in our community and raise scholarship dollars to support our student mothers – women who are seeking the education and career training opportunities they need to secure meaningful employment and a bright future for their families.

This event has something for everyone. Click the link above to register, or if you want to volunteer, please email Jenn.Marts@cpcc.edu.
