The Cary Unity Walk is an event to celebrate citizens working together to support local first responders and create a safe, unified, and nurturing community for our youth and our future. This event will also benefit two non-profit organizations that serve many needs in our community.
The 200 Club of Wake County provides immediate financial help for the families of police officers, sheriff deputies, firefighters, EMS squad members, and North Carolina highway patrol serving in Wake County who lose their life in the line of duty.
Read and Feed gives low-income elementary school children an appetite for reading by strengthening their literacy skills. Using mobile classrooms, Read & Feed provides meals to eliminate hunger, mentors to help children learn to read, and books to build home libraries.
This event will kick off with a walk from Downtown Cary to WakeMed Soccer Park. At the park there will be a festival with exhibits from local area responder agencies and fun activities for kids. Fit & Able will also stage a 5K and 10K race.
