"We appreciate the dedication and all the hard work that goes into the Rives Race each year.  We'd like to thank the sponsors, runners and all the volunteers for making it a success," Melissa Weavil, Program Coordinator of Heart Strides. "The monies raised will help many of our friends and family in the High Point community participate in Heart Strides. We are extremely proud of this community and of the effort and support given each year to the Rives Race."

The Warren Rives 5K Run/Walk & Fun Run is named for Warren J. Rives, Jr. who was a generous community leader and the youngest member to serve on the High Point Regional Board of Trustees. Tragically, he died of a heart attack in 1990 at the age of 41. His family and friends established the Rives Trust which supports and promotes cardiac and pulmonary awareness and rehab. His daughter, Olivia Rives Kiefer, serves as the Chair of the Rives Race event. Click here to view the official 2013 race results.
