Hunter Pace to benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters May 2

Published 5:59 pm Wednesday, April 28, 2010

The third annual Hunter Pace at Caroland Farms for Big Brothers Big Sisters will be held on Sunday May 2, with a rain date of May 9. These trails are marked by Duane and Harlene Harm on private properties that are shared for this event. This ride is a favorite of many riders on the Western Carolina Hunter Pace series.

Many volunteers are preparing for the BBBS Hunter Pace to help make it enjoyable and successful. With plenty of room for parking, well-marked trails with views, professional timing by Joey Cabiness, and a barbecue lunch prepared by Harry Denton, this Hunter Pace offers the opportunity to enjoy a pleasant ride while helping support a charitable cause.

Big Brothers Big Sisters has matched over one hundred Littles with volunteer Bigs in area schools and communities in Polk County and Landrum. The benefits to these children include improved self-esteem, behaviors and school performance, and lessened likelihood of youth drug and alcohol use.
