Due to damage caused by last night's flash floods, the One Fund 5K scheduled for Friday July 12th, 2013 at 5:30 PM has been postponed until a future date.
"Unfortunately the weather is not cooperating with us for the race this year,"explains Montreat Cross Country and Track Coach Justin Herbert. "This is such a great event that so many people have worked hard to create. SoleHope, our Cross Country program, Janel Cox, Annina Gruber, and so many more people have been involved in establishing this event and putting it on, so it's disappointing that we've been forced to postpone the race, but we'll go back to the drawing board, find another weekend, and put the race on later in the year so that we can continue to support these two great charities--SoleHope and Boston's One Fund."
MONTREAT, N.C. -- What will you remember about the 2012-13 year in Montreat College Athletics? The historic? The hysterical? Or the heart-stopping? Any way you look at it, the past year in sports at Montreat College had an overwhelming number of fascinating moments.
April 15, 2013 was the day of this year's Boston Marathon. It was a tragedy not only for the people running in the marathon, but for people and runners all over the world. Montreat College wants to show their compassion and support to those affected by the bombings in Boston that day.
Head of Montreat's Cross Country and Track program, Justin Herbert, is planning a race called the "One Fund 5k." One Fund is an organization that provides money for the victims of the bombings. Those affected have outrageous hospitals bills and even though we can't erase what happened that day in Boston we want to show the love and support we have for them.
