FOR CHARITY

Run White & Blue 7.4 is a charity event established to support military veterans and first responders in the Lake Norman area just north of Charlotte, NC.  The event has affiliated itself with a few charity opportunities.  First, the American Legion Post 321 in Huntersville, NC.  The American Legions goal is the assist military veterans, their families and their communities.  We hope to increase the awareness of the local American Legion and their programs in the local community.  Second, Combat Flags based in Davidson, NC is a military veterans suicide awareness and assistance program.  A veteran founded and led organization which raises funds for Stop Soldier Suicide by re purposing soldier fatigues into flags.  Proceeds from the sale of the flags go directly to soldier suicide prevention.  Third, the Mecklenderg Country Fire Fighters' Burned Childrens Fund.  The organization was established to provide support to burn patients and to help prevent burn injuries.  Local fire stations have aluminum can collection trailers to raise money for the program.  One of these trailers will be present at the event.  Please bring your cans for collection.
