About the Cause
Historic Wilmington Foundation is celebrating its 50th year as a leader in historic preservation throughout Wilmington and the Lower Cape Fear region. It has been directly responsible for saving over 100 buildings such as the de Rosset House (now the City Club), and the Coastline Conference and Events Center building, and its influence has impacted the preservation and restoration of many more. We educate the community on historic preservation and advocate for tools which make preservation possible such as the state tax credits and National Register designations.
In addition to the Foundation, money raised from this event will go to our partnership with New Hanover County Schools: Tar Heels Go Walking. Since 2009, through this walking tour, Tar Heels guides have educated 17,500 children, 1,200 parent volunteers and 300 teachers about historic preservation, Wilmington history, public art, and city development. For many children it is their first look at their home town in a new way.
Participants who register by Sunday, October 9, 2016 are guaranteed a race shirt. Sizes include Adult Unisex S – XL and Youth S – L, and are made of Cotton/Polyester Blend. Shirts are while supplies last. Be sure to claim your shirt today!
