Races in Familiar Places: Aquesta Bank/PostNet 5K Run/Walk

Fellow DARTer Mike MacIntyre mentioned another upcoming local race that's truly worthy of your consideration.  It's the Aquesta Bank/PostNet 5K Run/Walk, and will take place on Saturday, Oct. 10th at 9:00a.m.  The race will begin at the Aquesta Bank on Jetton Rd. in Cornelius and finish at Jetton Park.

The race is intended to "raise awareness and funds to fight a horrible disease that most people know by the name Lou Gehrig's", or ALS.  Dennis Coogle, the owner of PostNet in Jetton Village, was recently diagnosed with this disease.  He and his wife Sherry are teaming up with Aquesta Bank to offer a family-friendly 5k run/walk.

A fundraiser will be held on October 8th.
