The Latin American Coalition's inaugural City of Immigrants 5k is a fundraiser to help with the important work of the Coalition, promoting full and equal participation of all people in the civic, economic and cultural life of North Carolina. Nearly 15% of Charlotteans are immigrants, 17% of all businesses in Charlotte are owned by immigrants, and nearly a third of all storefront businesses in Charlotte are owned by immigrants. We are a City of Immigrants: Let's run (or walk) with it!
