Strip it to Give it! - SMPS Charlotte Local Charity Outing

January 11, 2020
9:30 AM - 12:30 PM

Triple C Brewing Company
2900 Griffith Street
Charlotte, NC 28203

Want to help out the Charlotte community? Love running (or walking!)? Then sign up for the 2nd Annual Strip It to Give It 5k under the team name “Notorious A/E/C” (yes, pun intended!)

Strip it to Give it is a charity race designed to bring Charlotte together to help clothe our homeless neighbors and support local organizations that are preventing and ending homelessness in the city. This race is out of the ordinary, and in the first year caught the eye of Runner's World Magazine and The Observer. In 2019, 475 runners (including 5 of our board members!) made their way through the streets stripping over 1,750 lbs of clothing. In 2020, they hope to see that number double.

Last year’s runners: Lauren Parks, Sara Snavely, Caitlin Rath, Kafferti Durham, Megan Asher (and special guest: Charley Asher!)

Not interested in running or walking or can’t make it to the event? You can still make clothing donations! Contact Megan Asher for more information.

 Will we see you at the start line!? Sign up today – the registration rates go up on January 10th!

Participants will be responsible for their own registration and fees. We will all meet at the New Bern Light Rail Station at 10:15am and walk over to Triple C together! Race starts at 11am.
