BB&T Bank Partners with Cannon YMCA

bbtB&BT Bank is partnering with the Cannon YMCA to support active lifestyle choices for individuals and families in Cabarrus County.

[Concord, NC], (June 1, 2017) – BB&T Bank values the importance of giving back to the community and promoting healthy, fun activities for all. That is why they have signed on as the Title Sponsor for the Cannon Memorial YMCA Race Series.

The Cannon Y Race Series includes three events; the Harrisburg 5K/10K, the West Cabarrus Pumpkin Roll 5K & Fall Festival, and the Kannapolis Frostbite 5K – held in the spring, fall and winter respectively. BB&T is sponsoring each of these events to help promote healthy, family-friendly activities in Cabarrus County.

As the Title Sponsor for these events, BB&T will join forces with the Cannon Y to encourage the community to stay active and participate in programs that positively impact members of Cabarrus County. “Making the communities in which we work better places to be is a big part of the BB&T mission. Participating in activities that promote healthy lifestyles while supporting families in need is a great way to exemplify that mission,” says Rob Betler, BB&T Market President of Cabarrus and Rowan County. BB&T’s gift will support the Open Doors Scholarship program, which provides financial assistance to YMCA members who otherwise are unable to afford critical programs like swim lessons, afterschool and camp.
