Victory-Junction-Pink-TruckWith temps expected to be in the 70s under cloudy skies in Thomasville, it’s looking to be a comfortable jaunt for those participating in CV Product’s 5K Walk/Run this Saturday.

So far more than 50 participants have already preregistered for the event, which will benefit Victory Junction and the Childress Institute for Pediatric Trauma — two organizations that have the health and welfare of children foremost in mind.

A half dozen of our own employees are penciled in for the race, including three of our accounting staff members — Denise Lanier, Belinda Conrad and Nidia Cruz. In addition, three of our warehouse team members are participating, including David Heaton, who finished fourth in last year’s event; Elliott Vickers, who took third-place honors in 2011; and Robert Peele.

The walk/run begins at 8 a.m. sharp with the pink Victory Junction truck — pictured above, donated by singer Taylor Swift — leading the pack out of the parking lot beside the football stadium at East Davidson High School.

Kids Activities PicFor a fifth consecutive year, CV Products is sponsoring a pair of events that benefit charities for which our company cares deeply. We’ll be actively participating in a 5k walk/run on Saturday, Sept. 29, beginning in the East Davidson High School parking lot in Thomasville, N.C., and then a car show the following Saturday (Oct. 6) at our own headquarters, across the street from the high school.

We’ve got more information about both events below, but first we want to introduce you to the two organizations that will benefit from these timely events. This is the 5th annual running for both the walk/run and car show, and proceeds benefit Victory Junction and The Childress Institute, two organizations that focus all of their attention on children with health care needs or youngsters who have been seriously injured and require help getting through unforeseen disabilities.

Victory-JunctionVictory Junction is an 84-acre camp for special kids with health care needs. Children who attend the camp suffer from one of two-dozen chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses, including autism, cancer, diabetes, hemophilia, sickle cell and spina bifida.

Located in Randleman, N.C., the camp has enriched the lives of more than 14,000 children and families since it’s opening in 2004. The camp and its staff provides a camping experience for children from all 50 states as well as four countries. A total of 30 hospitals work with Victory Junction — as well as thousands of volunteers — each providing exceptional care to these young campers. Continue reading
