This event is unlike any other: totally run on the beach at low tide.

 


 

ABOUT THE CAUSE

 

WB Foundation logo

Please join us at the 3rd Annual Pier to Pier to Pier Run/Walk with a free Kid’s Crab Crawl benefiting the Wrightsville Beach Foundation.

The Wrightsville Beach Foundation (WBF) is formerly known as the WB Parks and Recreation Foundation. This non-profit organization was founded in 2005 when a group of WB Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee(WBPRAC) members and concerned residents identified a gap between park amenity needs and lack of town funding. The committee obtained non-profit status and started a membership and sponsorship drive with proceeds going towards improvement of the park equipment such as a new gazebo, picnic table and grills and a kayak for the Wrightsville Beach Elementary School.
