William J. Bowman Square
VermilliRUN is a 5K run/walk race event that takes participants through the streets of the Vermillion Community in Huntersville, NC. The event is in honor of Brian Bowman, a beloved member of the Vermillion community who passed away from bone cancer in 2014.
Each year a local charity is selected to be the beneficiary of all race proceeds. For our 2020 race, all proceeds from pre-race fundraising events and the 5K run/walk race event will benefit Claire’s Army, dedicated to serving families fighting childhood cancer by supporting their daily responsibilities and allowing them to put time and focus on their child.
Since our inaugural race in 2018, VermilliRUN has raised $60,271.63 for our local charity partners!
We run to raise awareness for local charities. We run to support and honor our friends, families and community. We run for those who no longer can.
We run to raise awareness of our local charity partner.
Our April 4th, 2020 VermilliRUN charity partner, Claire’s Army, is an IRS approved 501 C(3) organization dedicated to empowering parents who’s child is fighting a pediatric cancer diagnosis by eliminating the daily stresses that can distract them from the precious moments they have with their sick child. Claire’s Army is an established network of resources coming together as an army of compassion and service to give parents the ability to focus solely on spending quality time with their family.
