Rise - and truly shine - when you help
local children, 0-5, succeed.
Join us for a Saturday morning party: A 5K and 1-mile fun run/walk, music, food, awards and raffle. For all ages -- all for a great cause.
Every step we take together has a power to create opportunities that can help the 1/3 of our children under age 5 whose well-being is threatened by the stress and pressures of living in poverty.
Register prior to August 10th before rates increase $5.
The downtown Winston-Salem course is flat and fast for serious and not-so-serious runners.
This event is part of the Piedmont Race Series powered by Finish Line Timing.
