4H’ers and co-ops run with The Pack

Twelve lucky 4-H’ers were selected to help pump up the crowd and join Wolfpack mascots Mr. and Mrs. Wuf as they sprinted onto the field just before kickoff at the Sept. 15 game against South Alabama.

North Carolina's electric cooperatives partnered with N.C. State University and 4-H programs across the state this fall to give kids a chance to "Run with the Pack" at a football game. The co-ops provided tickets and meal vouchers to the kids and their families, and the 4-H'ers were featured on the big video board. Runners, who traveled to Raleigh from as far as Lawndale in Cleveland County and Wilmington in New Hanover County, ranged in age from 9–11 years and are all active in local 4-H programs.

North Carolina's electric co-ops have a long history of supporting 4-H in our state, and this is the fourth year in a row that the co-ops have offered this opportunity. For more information on the co-ops' commitment to local communities, go to www.ncelectriccooperatives.com/community.
