2nd annual Moonlight Moonshine 10K and Fun Run.
This weekend will mark the second annual Moonlight Moonshine 10k & Half Pint Fun Run benefit for the Macon County Heritage Center at the Historic Cowee School.
The event, which is expected to register more than 100 runners from all over the region, is sponsored in part by the Cowee Community Development Organization (CCDO). Eric Moberg with the CCDO, is excited about the event and the chance to raise some funds for the heritage center. “We started this event to help raise money for all of the community activities that go on at the heritage center at Cowee school,” said Moberg. “From the concert series, to the classes, to the fitness opportunities we schedule, the center is a great resource for the community and the county as a whole.”
According to Moberg, one main project that needs help with financing at the center are renovations to the kitchen so it will pass inspection and be opened for public use. “We want to be able to rent out the kitchen space for canning and classes like cooking for the community, but some improvements need to be made first,” said Moberg.
