Future Energy (parking lot) 130 West Graham Street Shelby, NC US 28150
The 5K Race is one of the pre American Legion World Series games. Each year proceeds from race to a non-profit. This year proceeds will go to Road to Hope Shelby. The Road to Hope Bike Ride, a 529-mile annual ride from Shelby to Washington, DC, each May. The ride ends at the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial, which lists the names of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty from as far back as 1791.
The registration fee for runners and phantom runners is $25; veterans and law enforcement officers who are runners will pay $15. Phantom runners will not receive race T-shirts or race bags. The 2019 5K had 153 participants; the ALWS committee is hoping that number doubles for 2021.
The ALWS is celebrating its 10th anniversary in Shelby-Cleveland County this year. The ALWS committee is planning various emphases and events to commemorate the milestone, among them the fundraising effort for the Road to Hope Shelby. The Road to Hope Bike Ride is a project of Law Enforcement United, which supports programs that include Concerns of Police Survivors (COPS), Kids Camp, Young Adult Camp, Outward Bound, college scholarships, retreats, training and counseling, equipment grants and The Spirit of Blue Foundation.
