PAC held it’s tenth annual fundraiser, PACWalk and Run at Harmon Field in Tryon Saturday, April 26. It was a beautiful day for the many PAC supporters who participated in the event.
In the men’s division, a father and son team won first and third places. Thomas Manning, the son, ran a 20.08 minute 5K run, and his father, Noel Manning, came in third. Second place went to Blake Butler.
Leah Hardin came in first place for the women, Lori Geddings took second place and Yvonne Dessoffy came in third.
Later that morning there was a great turnout for the two-mile walk. Door prizes were given to lucky participants.
PAC is a non-profit 501(c)(3) qualified conservation organization (land trust) that works with landowners to ensure the long-term protection of their land through voluntary conservation easements.  Conservation easements enable landowners to maintain ownership and management of their property, preserving precious natural resources (open lands, forests, wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, farmland, stream banks, etc.), and potentially obtain significant federal, state, and local tax benefits. PAC’s mission is to protect and conserve our area’s natural resources with a vision of a community living and growing in harmony with our natural heritage and a goal to provide a legacy that will endure and be valued by generations to come.
