The 21st Anniversary Women’s Only 5k Walk & Run
Bank of Oak Ridge was a proud sponsor of the 21st Anniversary Women’s Only 5k on October 5, 2013. This year’s theme was SHEROS (female super heroes against cancer) and many ladies dressed the part. Bank of Oak Ridge handed out 2,000 pink recyclable bags with invitations to the upcoming shred event prior to the race and then provided bottled water along the home stretch.
The event was a huge success with a record breaking 4,000+ women and girls registered and over $110,000 raised for the Mammography Scholarship Fund. This will help provide free, life-saving mammograms and follow-up care for women in our area who are uninsured or lack the financial means to pay for the screening.

2012 Summerfield Founders’ Day
Historians and townspeople love days like Summerfield Founders’ Day. It was a day of celebrating past, present and future. Bank of Oak Ridge joined in the festivities surrounding Summerfield Founders’ Day in May once again this year. We walked the parade route and threw out over 1,000 beach balls and lucky registrant Jason Long won the Char-Broil Commercial Infrared Grill.
Summerfield held its 16th celebration of Founders’ Day, and the town also marked a milestone…the 200th anniversary of when it changed names. The town was formerly called Bruce’s Crossing.
The event is held over two days and started Friday night with a concert, carnival rides and food. Saturday the event kicked off with the annual parade, and included live entertainment, food and pig races. The Summerfield Founders’ Day parade is the longest running parade in Guilford County.
2012 Oak Ridge Elementary PTA Carnival
Bank of Oak Ridge has been a tremendous supporter of our school. In this day and age, big business doesn’t give back to the community, your bank does. That goes a long way with our parents.”
