      Fun Run for Charities

      Fun Run for Charities has something for everyone! A sanctioned 5k run, a sanctioned 10k run and a run for the rest of us.... including those who prefer to walk, push a stroller or just run for fun!

      The purpose of the Fun Run is two fold. First, we want an event that everyone can enjoy. Second, we want to raise lots of money for needy organizations, to improve the quality of life in Rocky Mount. Fun Run for Charities is sponsored by Reach Out Rocky Mount, a diverse group of citizens dedicated to the idea that Rocky Mount’s best days are yet to come and that, together, we can make a better community for all.

      When you participate and give to Fun Run for Charities, you’re money goes farther!

      About Reach Out Rocky Mount:

      Reach Out Rocky Mount came to be after several long-time local philanthropists visited and participated in the successful Old Bill's Fun Run for Charities in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. After many years of generous giving, the philanthropists found a way to duplicate the same success in their own hometown of Rocky Mount, North Carolina. With a strong desire to grow and sustain the vital non-profit rganizations as well as the city of Rocky Mount, an opportunity arose in January 2008 to introduce their idea to a small group of local people.

      The idea was simple: Reach Our Rocky Mount would organize an annual event called Fun Run for Charities with the goal of bringing the community together promoting fellowship and fun while raising lots of money for Rocky Mount's non-profit organizations, schools, and faith-based community outreach programs. From the early meetings a volunteer board was established to accomplish their goal without any paid employees. The board recognized the magnitude of their goal and decided to align with the North Carolina Community Foundation which now assists Reach Out Rocky Mount by managing its endowment fund and the gift fund for Fun Run for Charities.

      Reach Out Rocky Mount's Mission:
