MATTHEWS, N.C. (PRWEB) April 03, 2019
Harris Teeter is proud to present the 42nd Annual Cooper River Bridge Run (CRBR), being held this Saturday, April 6, 2019 in Charleston, S.C.
Harris Teeter joined the CRBR event in 2017 as the Official Grocery Sponsor. In 2018, the company increased its commitment to Presenting Sponsor.
“Harris Teeter has deep roots in the Lowcountry,” said Danna Robinson, communication manager for Harris Teeter. “Just as the race is in its 42nd year, Harris Teeter has been serving the Lowcountry for 42 years. We opened our first Charleston store in the late ‘70s, and have been proud to support the vibrant Lowcountry community for decades.”
In preparation for this year’s event, Harris Teeter hosted a contest inviting runners to share their inspiration for running. To enter, contestants shared photos on Twitter and Instagram of what motivates them to run using the hashtags #WhyICRBR and #TeamTeeterCRBR. The winner received two free event entries and will join 200 Harris Teeter associates and running partners on TeamTeeter for the Bridge Run. The company invites all CRBR participants and spectators to share their “why” on social media using hashtags #WhyICRBR and #TeamTeeterCRBR throughout the event.
Harris Teeter and its dedicated team of volun‘Teeters’ will support all CRBR festivities by providing snacks and refreshments at the Kids Run; hosting product demos with free samples and a photo booth during the Bridge Run Health & Wellness Expo; providing CRBR participants with water along the 10K route; and providing post-race food, refreshments and entertainment at the Bridge Run Finish Festival in Marion Square.
“Harris Teeter’s commitment to the Cooper River Bridge Run and the Lowcountry surpasses our expectations,” said Mark Cellars, Assistant Race Director. “The Harris Teeter team elevates our events with the same commitment to quality and customer service that you experience in their stores.”
Harris Teeter’s commitment to the Charleston community is demonstrated by the company’s growing number of stores, staffed by friendly, valued associates who are committed to creating an incredible place to shop. The company also has longtime, active partnerships with various local nonprofits and provides financial support of area schools through its Together in Education program.
Harris Teeter would also like to thank its vendor partners: Coca-Cola Consolidated, Tide and Campbell’s Snacks for making Harris Teeter’s Presenting Sponsorship possible. The company would also like to thank Niagra Bottling for providing bottled water for the event.
