The Arts Empowerment Project will be holding its third annual Twirl N Swirl 5K Race/Walk on April 6, 2019 (rain or shine). It is supported by the Project’s youth advisory council, board members, sponsors and community supporters.

The 5K event will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Carmel Village at 7520 Pineville-Matthews Road in south Charlotte and proceed down Carmel Road. The Kids Fun Run will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The 5K is in honor of National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Race proceeds benefit the Judge Bill Jones Memorial Scholarship Fund for at-risk students pursuing private study, higher education and special training in an arts-related field.
