While changes to national and state health care laws have expanded the reach of health care coverage, there are still folks without insurance facing difficulties obtaining medical attention. The New Hope Clinic is one of the long-standing providers serving Brunswick County residents in need of health & dental care. To keep the clinic running, the Southport Rotary Club is sponsoring the 7th Annual Go, Jump in the Lake fundraising race at Spring Lake Park in Boiling Spring Lakes.
This is a running (or walking) event-featuring a 10k, 5k, plus a Fun Run-but the most exciting part may be the jumping in the lake bit at the finish line. Our own Rachel Lewis Hilburn is one of the judges critiquing the quality of the splashes made-there are multiple prizes.
The race is on Sunday, September 6. The fun starts at 8:30 am. Register online here.
