Christina Latini Memorial 8K, 2 Mile Walk and Virtual Run Benefiting Operation Sweet Tooth
April 21, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm
Each year, we are looking to organize quarterly initiatives that support Operation Sweet Tooth. This is the inaugural In Loving Memory of Christina Latini 8K Run and 2 Mile Walk to benefit Operation Sweet Tooth. Our hope is this race will further drive our efforts to help provide for future outreach events for our local children. The outpouring and support we have received to support Operation Sweet Tooth has been tremendous. Through our first Toy Drive in December 2016, we were able to raise nearly 3,000 toys and gifts spanning across six different states that were distributed to children in orphanages, hospitals, behavioral homes, etc. We continued our efforts in the spring by hosting an Easter Basket Drive that benefitted the Church of God Orphanage. Most recently, we held a Back To School Supply drive benefiting Communities in School Charlotte and Classroom Central. It’s through God’s Grace and the communities generosity that we have been able to touch so many lives and muster up the strength we never thought was possible.
We know there are many race options each weekend as we head into the Spring. We hope you consider participating in our race, to honor a little girl who was full of life until her last breath, as well as support Operation Sweet Tooth to assist children in our community who are less fortunate.
