Shelby Junior Charity League presents it’s 1st Annual Charity Chase 5k! Please save the date, April 25th 7:30am at Shelby City Park. This race is for a great cause. Your participation will help us clothe kiddos in Cleveland County. We are so pleased that Charity Chase 5k and the Cleveland County Schools Fun Run have worked together so that these two special events will not conflict with each other.

Whether you are a speed walker or a lightening fast runner, the Charity Chase 5k would be a fun race to train for (or just wake up that morning and do) with some friends. The best part is that ALL race proceeds will help purchase brand new, fashionable, well fitting clothing for needy students of all ages in schools all over Cleveland County. When kids go to our Clothing Room they receive two pairs of pants, two shirts, one sweatshirt, one winter coat, five pairs of socks, underclothes and a hygiene kit. Most of us have way more than we need. Wouldn’t it be awesome to rally friends to do something that will greatly benefit a child in need? Just think, if you and 4 friends sign up, you can fund one child’s trip to the Clothing Room. You can register for race at THANK YOU to those who have already signed up and to those of you considering it!

If you want to walk or run the 5k, please register at



The Charity Chase 5k will start promptly at 7:30am. The Kids Fun Run will begin at 8:15am. Both events will take place at Shelby City Park, located at 901 West Sumter Street, Shelby, NC 28150.
