News 13 WLOS Pet Event - Holly V

Hunter Subaru supported the News 13 WLOS Pet Event again in 2021! This event brings together the majority of the pet adoption agencies in the region in ONE location. Hunter Subaru hosted the event at their new campus in Fletcher and it was a highly successful event. Our biggest challenge was we adopted so many animals- we ran out of animals to adopt! We also had some senior and handicapped adoptions that really made the event a truly life saving event. The Hunter Subaru campus was perfect with the beautiful outdoor spaces and dog park! We can't thank Hunter Subaru enough for all of their amazing support of pets in need in our community.

Oktoberfest Half Marathon & 5K - Leslie G

The Oktoberfest Half Marathon and 5k helps converts a challenging run into funds for the Mills River Partnership as well as local schools. Our race took place on October 2, 2021 at the Oskar Blues Brewery. Hunter Subaru stepped up to be our presenting sponsor for this event in 2019 and hung with us as we had to postpone the race from 2020 to 2021. Knowing we had a solid supporter in Hunter Subaru, we were able to pull off the 2021 race and bring back one of the area's favorite new races. Thanks again to Hunter Subaru for "Sharing the Love" with the Oktoberfest Half, the Mills River Partnership, the Brevard Academy and the Friends of Pisgah Collective. Prost!

Hunter invests in environment and recreation! - Jenn T

Thanks to Hunter Subaru’s generous sponsorship, Conserving Carolina hosted a very successful Conservation Celebration fundraiser. This year’s event had to be held virtually, but we raised over $90,000 for conservation projects in Henderson, Transylvania, Polk, and surrounding counties. Hunter’s investment makes a real difference in our community through land conservation and restoration, outdoor recreation, environmental education, and so much more. Right now this gift is opening new trails, like Youngs Mountain Trail in Lake Lure and the 19-mile Ecusta Trail greenway that will connect Hendersonville to Brevard, restoring natural floodplains like the one at Mud Creek in Mills River, engaging more people with conservation through outdoor challenges, bilingual nature walks, and forest bathing, and progressing climate solutions by protecting forests, and creating wildlife corridors. We are so grateful to Hunter Subaru for their commitment to our shared environment and community!

Run, Bike & Raise funds for childhood cancer - Daphne K

The 9th Annual Asheville Off Road Series, a run and bike style event took place at Ride Kanuga in Hendersonville, NC on Sunday, September 19th. This event was a fundraiser for St. Baldrick's Foundation, an organization that dedicates dollars to research for childhood cancer. Thank you to Hunter Subaru for helping make this event possible this year at the relocated location. The event not only was an awesome, fun and challenging day for the trail runners, gravel grinder bike riders and the duathletes but it also had a bigger purpose. We are pleased to provide the platform for the St. Baldrick's organization to raise funds for research. Thank you Hunter Subaru for all your support at the event and with all you did to help make the event a success.

Hunter helps bring the music back for the summer. - Greg W

We were able to bring our summer concert series back to Fletcher because of the very generous sponsorship provided by Hunter Subaru. We held three community outdoor concerts at Blue Ghost Brewing Company in Fletcher this June, July, August. Over 500 people attended the events, and it was great to see families and individuals enjoying live music and spending time relaxing with friends in the Fire Fly meadow outside. Hunter Subaru does so many good things for our community and we are very thankful to be able to partner with them for our 2021 summer concert series in Fletcher.

Hunter Subaru is first place at Strut Your Mutt! - Laura R

It was truly paw-some to return to in-person (and in-pup) events with the support of Hunter Subaru this year! For our first major event of the year, Hunter Subaru partnered as presenting sponsor for the annual Strut Your Mutt 5k and 1 Mile Furry Scurry, raising funds, while having fun, for the animals cared for by Blue Ridge Humane! The event saw record enrollment and we loved sharing the excitement with our Hunter Subaru friends at both Fido’s Night Out-an exclusive dog-friendly event at the new Fletcher location the night before the run, and on race day! Blue Ridge Humane depends on local funding from both corporate partners and individuals donors. Having a partner like Hunter Subaru is a win-win every single year and results in that many more cats and dogs being saved and finding a home where they are loved, the foundation of the Subaru Love Promise.

Hunter Subaru keeps triathlons alive! - Daphne K

Without Hunter Subaru's support from start to finish the Hendersonville Triathlon wouldn't have been possible this year. The race is in its 2nd year and takes place at Patton Park in Hendersonville, North Carolina. With events now coming out the other side of the pandemic, the expenses for events have skyrocketed. It seems that businesses are trying to recoup monies that have been lost during the pandemic thus increasing our expenses to produce our events. The Hendersonville Triathlon is no different. The triathlon community is small compared to the running community in our region, but it is equally important to invest and support the multi-sport athletes in our community. Monies from the event and sponsorship also supported the Friends of the Oklawaha Greenway, the Hendersonville YMCA, iDream Athletes Foundation and the Henderson County VIPs. Thank you to Hunter Subaru for supporting the multi-sport athletes and our non-profit partners in our community. Thank you Hunter Subaru for continuing to spread the love in your community!
