Cary Unity Walk and Fun Run

The Cary Unity Walk is an event to celebrate citizens working together to support local first responders and create a safe, unified, and nurturing community for our youth and our future. This year we are proud to announce that the Cary Unity Walk is also helping support the Triangle Apartment Association's nonprofit organization A New Lease on Life.

A New Lease on Life assists those experiencing homelessness to get back on their feet through stable housing by providing an available apartment home at a reduced rate over a 12-24 month period. The program offers a hand up to those in need. Our purpose is to provide an essential need through stable housing thereby allowing these families to establish up to 2 years of positive rental history thereby allowing them to remain as market renters or in some instances to purchase a home of their very own.
Their Mission Statement: Empowering those who are experiencing homelessness by equipping them with opportunities to obtain stable housing.

This event will kick off with a walk around WakeMed Soccer Park. Fit & Able will also stage a 5K and 10K race at WakeMed Soccer Park.

Travis Manion Foundation 9/11 Heroes Run

The 9/11 Heroes Run activates and unites communities to honor the sacrifices of those heroes from September 11th and the wars since, to include veterans, active duty, first responder, and families of the fallen. The 9/11 Heroes Run 5K +1M fun run/walk welcomes runners and walkers of all levels and of all ages, volunteers, friends, and family. It is not about fitness level or experience but about activating, uniting, and honoring our heroes.

Started in 2007 by family of fallen 1st Lt. Travis Manion as a grassroots run in his hometown Doylestown, PA with 300 runners, the 9/11 Hereos Run now has more than 50 race locations, presence in 38 different states across the country, and unites more than 50,000 people yearly to celebrate our heroes and spread awareness. Race proceeds are used to directly support the Travis Manion Foundation's mission to empower our nation's veterans and families of our fallen heroes to develop character in future generations in order to strengthen communities. In select locations, a portion of race proceeds are granted back to a local nonprofit partner whose mission is also to empower our heroes. We believe the best way to honor the fallen is by challenging the living.
Join us to raise awareness and honor the fallen.

Each year on or near September 11, local volunteers who have asked themselves “If Not Me, Then Who…” organize 9/11 Heroes Runs on behalf of TMF in more than 50 cities around the world. Runners and walkers of all levels and all ages come together to support TMF and honor fallen heroes.

Run, Volunteer, Donate, Cheer…but most of all: HONOR
We RUN to honor the heroes of 9/11.
We run to HONOR those who’ve served our nation since.
We run to ACTIVATE & UNITE COMMUNITIES and EMPOWER local veterans, active duty, first responders, and families of the fallen.

Strides for Speech

Imagine if the last thing you said tonight was the last thing you said..... period. Aphasia is a devastating consequence to stroke, brain injury, and other progressive diseases that rob individuals of their ability to express their thoughts and ideas. Even with intact cognition, memory, and intellect, individuals suffering from aphasia often feel isolated not being able to return to the vocational or recreational pursuits they had prior to their diagnosis.

The Triangle Aphasia Project, Unlimited is a nonprofit organization that provides programming to individuals with aphasia, their families, and the community. With a Life Participation approach, we strive to reduce communication barriers and improve social engagement and speech/language potential. TAP provides group programs, trainings, education and opportunities throughout the Triangle and beyond.

TAP's goal for Strides for Speech is not just to help support its community programming but also provide a fun, safe activity for those with aphasia and their families. Whether you walk, run, stroll, or roll this 5K and ½ mile is a perfect opportunities for everyone to come together to support TAP and learn more about how they can help those we serve.

We hope you'll join us on October 6th and please invite your friends and family to walk or run with you!

Rotary District 7710 7th Annual GlobalRun4Water

District 7710 Mission: Our mission is to help needy people in the world have clean drinking water, because safe water helps to liberate people so they can live healthier, fuller, and more productive lives. At the same time we are going to raise awareness among Rotarians of the worldwide water crisis and improve Rotary's public image as a major player in the water and sanitation cause.

How Past Proceeds were Used:
Over the 6 years of this race, we have raised over $61,000. Using these proceeds in combination with matching funds from District 7710 and The Rotary Foundation, we have been able to provide clean water, hygiene training, and in some cases modern sanitation facilities to villages and schools in Bolivia, the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Haiti, Honduras, India, Lebanon, Peru, Tanzania, and Uganda.

Clean water, hygiene training, and adequate sanitation facilities are much needed components for disease prevention, good health, and quality of life that the residents of these communities lacked due to their extreme poverty.

New Project - Proceeds from the 7th Annual District 7710 GlobalRun4Water will be used to help fund projects in Peru and other areas currently being evaluated.

Schedule: Saturday November 10th

Krampus Skramble

The first of December brings thoughts of all the wonderful treats and gifts to come. Its also when parents start asking, “have you been naughty or nice this year?” We all, even the best of us, get into mischief throughout the year and while Saint Nicolas in his jolliness might look the other way his counterpart (co-worker, really), Krampus, never misses a dirty deed. But Fit & Able is here to help!

On December 1st don't run from your mistakes! The Krampus Skramble is your last chance to help others and get on the good list before Christmas! Some only need to scramble for a mile… others 2 or 3 or more!

This is a special kind of event that you can't do anywhere else in the Triangle. Basically, run as much or as little as you want! You'll have 90 minutes to run as far and as fast as you can. There will be prizes for Most Miles, Fastest Mile, Youngest Miler, and Oldest Miler. How many laps can you do in 90 minutes? You can also choose to race individually or as a relay team. Prizes are available for both categories!

This event helps Fit & Able Productions continue to support other non-profits in raising awareness of their missions and the money to support those missions. Each year we either stage events for many charities or invite them to be part of our races so that they can succeed in their great work.
