Catawba Valley Community College's Christ-centered organization, Cru.@CVCC, will hold its 6th Annual Run of the Mill 5K Charity Walk/Run at historic Murrays Mill.  This year Cru.@CVCC wants to help our community become more aware of the homeless and their needs in the Catawba Valley area.


Race director Amanda Crouse heads up the event again this year in April and invites the community to come out and support Housing Visions Catawba ( while enjoying a wonderful Catawba County historical site. 

"Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me."

In 2013, Run of the Mill benefitted the Council On Adolescents of Catawba County.  Past recipients include Safe Harbour Rescue Mission, the Rape Crisis Center of Catawba County and ACTION kivu, an international organization that helps women in the Congo.  Last year's event was our largest ever and attracted over 140 participants and 30 volunteers and, along with other campus events, raised an impressive sum for a variety of causes!  We hope this year's Run of the Mill will be even bigger!  Hope to see you there!
