Yadkin Bank to Join Race 13.1 in North Carolina Series
Yadkin Bank to sponsor $1,000 giveaway at three spring races.
Race 13.1 is pleased to announce that Yadkin Bank will join the Raleigh-based half marathon race series as the Official Bank for three spring events in Wilmington, Greensboro and Raleigh.
Yadkin Bank will be the sponsor of a $1,000 giveaway at the Race 13.1 half marathon, 10k and 5k events to take place in Wilmington on February 21, Greensboro on May 15, and Raleigh on June 4. All three events are expected to attract 1,000-2,000 participants, who will each have an equal opportunity to win the giveaway at the completion of the event. One runner will be chosen at random to receive the $1,000 prize as a certificate of deposit or in a savings account at Yadkin Bank, determined at the sole discretion of Race 13.1.
"Yadkin Bank is proud to partner as the Official Bank of Race 13.1," said Regional President Chris Moore. "Enhancing the quality of life through a sense of community, family, and wellness are shared principles among both organizations and we look forward to supporting these exciting events."
Yadkin Bank and Race 13.1 were a natural fit for the partnership, as each institution strives to offer best-in-class customer service in their respective fields and give back to their communities.
"We're thrilled to partner with Yadkin Bank in multiple markets," said John Kane, Founder and CEO of Race 13.1. "Both Race 13.1 and Yadkin Bank are committed to giving back in each community where our customers live, and that commonality makes this a great partnership for not only Race 13.1 and Yadkin Bank, but most importantly for each of our customers."
