Take the Lake is possible with the generous support
of our community of sponsors and volunteers.
Take the Lake is an expansion of a treasured Columbus County tradition on and around one of its most beautiful natural resources. We are optimistic that this event will grow to be an important and popular feature of life here.
Rural Americans face a greater battle against obesity and its related diseases than do people in cities, and we believe that projects like Take the Lake will give our residents a fighting chance.
We have a great need for families and organizations to support this free event, and are pleased that Columbus County has stood up to the task. This project is backed by The News Reporter and NRcolumbus.com, and sponsors who support it enjoy the exposure this media relationship offers.
With the help of our sponsors, we have been able to offer the people of Columbus County a fitness event that is exciting and motivating. We have also produced longstanding products, including mile markers around Lake Waccamaw, and a loaner kit to help people organize their first race or fitness event. We have purchased a large race timer clock that we loan out to race organizers.
In 2014 we are purchasing tree markers to clearly mark the trail from the picnic area to the dam. These can be used by visitors to the park year-round to easily travel that route, which has been vague in spots.
The Take the Lake Foundation is registered with the state of North Carolina. Each year, we donate money to organizations who assist in producing Take the Lake.
The people of Columbus County, and especially we on the Take the Lake team, greatly appreciate the support of community leaders, and we look forward to working with you in this battle for a fighting chance.
