Nags Head NC (July 17, 2014) – The Outer Banks Relief Foundation is proud to announce that PNC Bank is the lead sponsor of the 13th annual Sandbar5K run/walk. The event, which typically sells out its 500 registration spots, will take place on Sunday August 3rd. Locals and visitors alike enjoy this beach race which raises funds for the Outer Banks Relief Foundation.
The Outer Banks Relief Foundation assists people in our community who are burdened with financial difficulties because of a debilitating disease or illness, or a personal tragedy of their own or of a family member. Since 2004, the foundation has provided over $995,000 to more than 500 local citizens in need.
“Being active in the community includes supporting citizens in need. PNC is proud to sponsor this event to aid the good work of the Outer Banks Relief Foundation,” says PNC Bank’s Nags Head branch manager Brendan Medlin.
PNC bank has 5 offices on the Outer Banks. The bank has operated successfully for 160 years and acquired RBC bank in 2013.
The morning race kicks off with OBX Skydive parachuting onto the Kitty Hawk beach at 7:15 a.m. Spectators are encouraged to enjoy this spectacular event.
