Cornelius PARC 5K Run/Walk 2018


The Cornelius PARC 5K Race/Run/Walk 2018 will be a fundraiser for Warrior Jace. Jace Thompson, son of Cornelius Police Captain Jennifer Thompson, was diagnosed last October at the age of 4 with a rare and aggressive tumor near his brain stem. Event proceeds will go to the Top Deck Foundation to benefit Warrior Jace and his family to assist with medical expenses. The race course will begin and end at Westmoreland Athletic Complex and wind through parts of the McDowell Creek Greenway, on beautiful trails and around scenic ponds of Robbins Park. The 5K race course is challenging, consists of elevation changes and incorporates a variety of running surfaces, including natural surface, gravel, pavement and a wooden boardwalk. This family- friendly event is open to most running/walking levels with race divisions divided into groups based on age and gender. Get your teams together and come run/walk to support this little Warrior! For more information or to register, visit
