For several years, the Main Street Mile has attracted participants of all ages including many of our Club's SMART Girls and Boys - a program that teaches character and leadership through running - to run a unique, fun short distance race.
Join us on Saturday, September 9, 2017 - 10am for the 3rd Annual Main Street Mile - presented by Pilot Cove. This fun, easy one-mile race cruises along beautiful, historic Main Street with a perfect downhill finish towards The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club.
About the Club
What began in a small community center serving less than 50 kids per day some 17 years ago has grown into a service that nearly 500 households rely on in our community. The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County serves over 250 youth daily through our afterschool and summer programs. Founded in 1999 by the late Cindy Platt, The Cindy Platt Boys & Girls Club of Transylvania County is committed to enabling all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. Through programs that focus on Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Good Character and Citizenship, we provide a safe place for school-aged youth, ages 5-18 to learn and grow. We invite you to learn more about our Club here.
