The Human Race is a 5K charity walk and run that encourages participants to raise money for their favorite non-profit (agency, church, school PTA). The Volunteer Center of Greensboro has managed the Race since 1994.
Greensboro’s 20th anniversary Human Race on March 29, 2014 raised over $140,000 for 95 area non-profits and PTPL raised $3.76.51. Between 2500-3000 walkers/runners/rollers braved the rain to participate in this citywide fund-raising event.
We were thrilled to have 100% participation by the PTPL Board, half of whom walked behind the new banner. In addition to the $1,256.51 raised by PTPL through the Human Race, PTPL received an additional $1,811 in donations directly from 5 long-term supporters.
