4th of July 5k
The Rotary Club of Kernersville 4th of July 5k Run is an annual event through the heart of downtown Kernersville. The race precedes the 4th of July parade which uses much of the same route. 5,000 people gather to watch the 5k and parade each year making for a unique setting in which the runners are cheered by the crowd throughout the race. We have about 600 runners from around the area who participate each year.

- 1st- $500
- 2nd – $300

Second Harvest and Solace IT Solutions “Food-Raiser”
Help Us Make a Difference for Families in Need & enter to win an iPad!
Next week Solace will begin collecting canned goods and dry goods to donate to Second Harvest Food Bank. Our food drive will help hungry families in our community.
Did you know North Carolina ranks fifth worst in the nation for the percentage of the population struggling with food insecurity?
Community food drives like ours help make sure those children and their families can get emergency food assistance when they need it.
Please give what you can. One grocery bag of food can provide as many as 11 meals. Every single donation helps, and together we hope our combined donations will make a real difference for those in need.
How to enter to win an iPad:
For every five (5) canned items, you will receive one (1) raffle ticket. The raffle will close at the end of the annual 4th of July race. You do not have to race to enter however, please feel free to join us in the fun. (Registration link below)
1. Donations can be collected from techs on site or you can put a ticket in and we’ll pick it up.
2. Feel free to drop by our office, we’d love to see you!
3. Bring your donations to the race. Solace will have a tent set up to take in donations.
Thank you for your help!
