We can’t think of a better way to spend the year’s trickiest day than participating in the Twirl ‘N Swirl 5K Saturday, April 1. Avoid the practical jokes and pranks and get some exercise while benefitting the Arts Empowerment Project (we love a two for one). This event is being held in conjunction with Country Day School and the t-shirt is going to be awesome. Here’s how being part of the Twirl ‘N Swirl 5K is better than a day of being fooled.
Support a great cause
Don’t be on the end of another “gotcha” joke. Help raise funds instead for the Art’s Empowerment Project’s Judge Bill Jones Memorial Scholarship which funds artistic aspirations for at-risk youth in Charlotte. This April event recognizes Child Abuse Prevention Month. Even if you don’t finish first (and we have our money on you), you are a winner with kids who need your help. And really, that beats a medal any day.
Bring the family
No need to be alone on April Fools Day, there is something for everyone at the Twirl ‘N Swirl 5 K. The 5K race starts at 8:30 a.m. Then let the kids burn off some energy at the Kids Fun Run at 9:30 a.m. Stick around for the awards ceremony following the Kids Fun Run. You just might need to clear a place off your mantel.
Make it a group activity
Let’s face it, practical jokes tear people apart but participating in races in scenic, beautiful south Charlotte brings everyone together. Enjoy the good feeling that comes with participating in community building activity that welcomes all ages and supports the fight against violence on our youth. If you have a group of five or more, you receive a discount on your entry. And with enough people, you can throw your own afterparty at your favorite brunch spot.
Register today for the Twirl ‘N Swirl 5K. This is the perfect way to welcome spring, understand the importance and impact the Arts Empowerment Project has on the community and keep the jokesters at bay.
