South End Shuffle 5k & Mile Run Brings Hundreds of Runners Back to South End

On Saturday, Sept 11, 2021 close to 1000 runners towed the line to #RunSouthEnd by taking part in the 8th Annual South End Shuffle 5k & Mile Run. Founded by our managing attorney, Ron Skufca, the South End Shuffle 5k & Mile Run is presented by Skufca Law, Beacon Partners, and Wooden Robot Brewery and benefits two local non-profits close to our hearts in South End and our nearby community: The Purple Promise to End Melanoma and West Blvd Ministry.

The day started with the 1 Mile Run, followed by an honor to the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and singing of the National Anthem by our friend Angie Rikard from the from Charlotte Speech & Hearing Center. Soon after, hundreds of runners and walkers took part in the 8th edition of this South End neighborhood tradition, which ends with a fun post-race awards ceremony and celebration at Wooden Robot Brewery!
