LOCO MOTION PROMOTING ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT OF LOWCOUNTRY
Laura Morgan is the founder of Carolina Cup – a 501c3 non-profit public charity solely dedicated to funding breast cancer education, treatment, and clinical research – and the driving force behind Hilton Head’s fundraising event LoCo Motion. Since 2009, Carolina Cups and LoCo Motion have been passionately dedicated to spreading knowledge and creating hope in the fight against breast cancer. The first two years of LoCo Motion have shown outstanding economic feedback, making the 2013 event look extremely promising.
LoCo Motion is a three-day run/walk event that combines three unique 10-mile courses across Hilton Head and Callawassie Island. The event has three main goals: to raise awareness and money for breast cancer prevention and treatment, to promote the economic development of the Lowcountry, and to get the Lowcountry moving. The weekend features after-parties, prizes and gorgeous views of South Carolina’s Lowcountry.
“It’s personal for a lot of the participants, but we try to make it fun. There’s defi nitely been a ‘LoCo family’ that has developed over the last several years,” Morgan said.
LoCo Motion 2013 will be held Sept. 26-29. Visit the website, www.dothelocomotion.org for more information about registering or volunteering.
