“It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it.”- Nelson Mandela


Together We Stand NC has designated September/October months for Unity.  We will host our third annual Unity 5K in four North Carolina cities.

Together We Stand NC is a movement supporting peaceful demonstration and honest conversations to raise awareness of challenges of people of color and different sexual orientations. The Unity 5K is our next step in continuing the conversation that began in 2021 with Maud 2.23. The continued importance of community and conversation is clear.

Four weekends in four cities, we will create a statewide conversation about unity utilizing local breweries and running stores as the foundation of the conversation. Join us for the Unity 5K series presented by Together We Stand NC.

We must continue the conversation.

Each registered runner/walker will receive the 2023 Together We Stand NC commemorative tee shirt. The 2023 Together We Stand shirt is the 9th in a series of wearable “conversation starters”.  The front of the maroon heather shirt features our iconic TWS Bull logo and the back features the quote: “It is in your hands, to make a better world for all who live in it.”- Nelson Mandela

For TWS, the goal is always to inspire meaningful conversation while also highlighting a local charity that is doing good work for communities of color and people of all genders and sexual orientations.

We hope to see you at one (or all) of the 2023 Unity 5K series.


Registration begins July 1, 2023.
