Did you know that the annual Run the Quay Race Events supports two great local nonprofit organizations? The net proceeds of the Run the Quay Events helps the Fuquay-Varina Chamber of Commerce (a 501(c)(6) nonprofit) to fulfill its mission of providing leadership, promoting quality economic growth and serving the community in an effort to enhance the quality of life of residents and local businesses. A portion of the net proceeds of the event also benefits Military Missions in Action (a 501(c)(3) charitable organization) which is dedicated to assisting veterans with disabilities, members of the Armed Forces and their families.
With your help, we can do a dash more to support the missions of these organizations with the Run the Quay Heroes Challenge.
Here’s how it works:
- Make a video and post it on the Run the Quay Events page on Facebook
- In your video do 2 things:
- Pledge to Run the Quay in honor of your hero and briefly explain why he/she inspires you. Your hero can be anyone who inspires you, a family member, a cancer survivor, active or retired military, community servant or comic book super hero.
- Challenge a few friends or even another business to join you in running the race OR making a direct donation to Military Missions in Action.
- Post your video on the event page and tag those you challenged in your video and include the hashtag #quayheroes and this link: http://bit.ly/quayheroes
When you post your video on our page we will promote it in the event stream and also embed all the videos below to create the Run the Quay Hero’s Wall.
