Dominion Power External Affairs Manager, Pam Pekrun stopped by Outer Banks Sporting Events (OBSE) on August 4th to award the Dominion Power sponsorship donation for 2015. Dominion has been the Start Line Sponsor for the TowneBank Outer Banks Marathon since 2007 and for the Flying Pirate Half Marathon Since 2010.
Dominion provides and coordinates man power and volunteers as well as hosts the Start Line area located at its facility on The Woods Road in Kitty Hawk. Dominion’s repeated dedication is of utmost importance to OBSE and the participating runners. This sponsorship enables OBSE to continue to support the quality of life for our local citizens.
