This month the Capstone team participated in a 5K race for Operation Smile. The race was held at Veterans Park located off Central Ave. in Charlotte. Fortunately for us the race did not begin until 5 p.m. on Saturday evening so it had cooled down a good bit by the time the race began. We were pleased with the turn out for the event that had just over 60 participants. Half of our office ran the 5K while the others volunteered to stand through out the course offering encouragement, water, and making sure that everyone stayed on track. Operation Smile is a nationally recognized organization that funds operations for children with cleft pallets and oral deformities. Early in the summer Capstone hosted a BBQ to raise money for the foundation. We are very passionate about the cause and were excited to participate in the event to help raise over $4,000 for the foundation.
