Piedmont's Great Race a Great Success

            Piedmont Middle School held its 4th annual Great Race on March 31, 2015.  Forty-five teams comprised of Piedmont students, parents and siblings participated in a fast-paced race around the world.  Teams raced against the clock and each other by traveling to 10 different countries.  While visiting each country each team had to successfully complete the assigned task in order to travel to the next country.  The top three teams to finish the race won prizes that were donated by surrounding business and community.  Among the contributors were; Sweet Frog, Compare Foods, Grand Asia Market in Charlotte, The Radke Family and The Starnes Family.  The Cooper family won first place, the Hodgin’s family won second place, and the Ruholl family won third place. However, all was not lost for the remaining teams as a raffle was held and consolation prizes were distributed.  Overall, it was a great night of family, fun, food and laughter at Piedmont Middle School.  Thank you to all who came to compete, and for all of the generous donations.
