FOR YOUR IMMEDIATE USE:
Charlotte – RunCharlotte welcomes Cortland, the 3rd largest owner of apartment communities in the Charlotte region, as partner sponsors of the 2022 RunCharlotte Six Pack Series of events and the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon.
As part of their activation on this partnership, Cortland will donate $1,000 to nonprofit beneficiaries of each of RunCharlotte’s Six Pack Series events presented by Novant Health:
- The Famous Toastery Shamrock 4 Miler – March 12
- Hit the Brixx 5k/10k – May 21
- Park National Bank American 4 Miler – July 4
- Yiasou Greek Festival 5k – August 27
- Novant Health 5k/15k – September 25
- Keffer Cares Boulder Dash – October 8
Cortland will welcome runners with a Celebration Zone at each Six Pack Series event as well as the Novant Health Charlotte Marathon. Runners can join the fun in the Celebration Zone, cool down and stretch out on the pop-up “grassy area,” and take that post-event selfie outside the Instagram-ready photo set-up.
Cortland supports healthy lifestyles throughout its eleven communities in the Charlotte region by offering wellness programming, policies, and healthy environmental features, including a non-smoking policy. Cortland’s Elevate Program allows residents to reach their fitness goals with free classes, discounted personal training and nutritional consultations, and a Cortland Run Club.
“Cortland really believes in giving back to the community and helping our residents achieve their fitness and wellness goals. Supporting RunCharlotte is a wonderful way of combining the two,” says Sarah Connolly CPM®, Managing Director at Cortland.
Cortland also shows its commitment to the community by rallying its residents for good, including an effort last year that collected more than 14,000 pounds of food for local food banks and diverted 126,000 pounds of clothing and textiles from area landfills.
“We are delighted to have Cortland as partners to celebrate healthy lifestyles and support our community with their generous donations,” says Tim Rhodes, Six Pack Series Race Director. “Their contributions to local communities and care for eliminating food and textile waste are great for everyone and our environment, too.”
