Black Creek Mountain Has Successful Inaugural Day Of Giving

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

The first ever Black Creek Mountain 5K and Jingle Bell Fun Run was held on Saturday. The races were in conjunction with Black Creek’s “Day of Giving” and will become an annual holiday event at the residential community.

The Day of Giving also featured a holiday home tour, which highlighted five homes throughout the community, as well as the clubhouse and sales center.  Proceeds from the race and the home tour went to The Chattanooga Area Food Bank and Heart of the Valley Christmas Fund.

“Despite the weather, we had a great turnout for the 5K and Jingle Bell Fun Run and Holiday Home Tour,” said Megan Pankiw, Membership manager at Black Creek Club.  “We had an overflow of food donated for the food bank, and are already hearing buzz about next year.”

Awards for the 5K were given to the top male and female finishers overall and first place male and female masters (over 40), grand masters (over 50), and top male and female finishers in each age group.
