The Results Are In For The 4th Annual Charlotte Heptathlon
On May 18th, athletes from across the Charlotte area put on their game faces for the 4th annual Charlotte Heptathlon that benefitted The Family Impact Fund. Friends turned to foes as participants pulled up their socks and laced their shoes ready to compete in seven events that tested the speed, agility, strength and endurance of over 150 competitors.
Although there were a few elbows thrown, there was much fun and camaraderie to be had as teams and fans cheered each other on during the trying series of events. This year, $162,000 was raised for The Family Impact Fund, and over the past four years, The Charlotte Heptathlon has collectively raised $762,000 for Charlotte based organizations.
And no competition would be complete without naming the athletes who excelled in each event category:
Overall Best Male: Nate Banhegyi
Overall Best Male Master: Seth Harward
Overall Best Female: Stephanie Bronson
Overall Best Female Master: Michelle Broadway
Overall Best Male Team: HSC2 (Garrett Birnbaum & Aaron Birnbaum)
