2013 Rock 'N Run - August 10th!

runnerMission of Rock 'N Run

The Mission of the NC Music Factory 5K Rock 'N Run/Walk event is to promote a positive social and economic impact for the North End corridor through promoting community and health awareness in connecting Charlotte-Mecklenburg to the "New North End".

The History

The NC Music Factory 5K Rock 'N Run was founded from within a fragile community called Lockwood (comprised of Plymouth Avenue, Sylvania Avenue and Keswick Avenue). In the late 90's, the Lockwood community was on the edge of gentrification, overwhelmed by drugs and prostitution. The hope and determination of a few community members fueled their ability to believe in the model that "we could change, we could make a difference".
