Wake-Up Walk & 5K

When: Saturday, August 26th @ 9:00 AM
Where: Bailey Park, 445 Patterson Avenue, Winston-Salem
Why: Family Services of Winston-Salem/Forsyth County
Who: Runners and Walkers of all Ages

Thanks to around 300 runners, walkers and volunteers, we enjoyed an awesome Saturday morning party in the park. 5K race results are posted. We look forward to sharing how your support will benefit our most vulnerable children and families in Forsyth County. 

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.
