Trinity Center 2nd Annual "Walk for Wellness, Run for Your Life" on October 29

Downtown Winston-Salem is the location for Trinity Center’s Second Annual “Walk for Wellness, Run for Your Life,” a fundraising event with both competitive and recreational races, entertainment, food and fun-filled activities for individuals and families. The event will be held on the morning of October 29 to promote mental health awareness and support the programs of Trinity Center, Inc., a non-profit ecumenical center that serves the mental health needs of the Winston-Salem community.

“We invite everyone in the community to join WXII’s Lanie Pope who will emcee and participate in this year’s ‘Walk for Wellness, Run for Your Life,’” says Lynn J. Brown, Executive Director of Trinity Center. “This is a perfect activity for families, groups, recreational walkers and runners, serious runners — and anyone who just wants to enjoy exercise and fellowship. We are so thankful for everyone who helps make this event a success.”
The race is directed by Twin City Track Club. Early registration pricing ends October 22. Participants may register online or by mail until Oct. 26 and by phone or in person up until the day of the race. Those who do not want to walk or run can participate in Cheer for Peers for $15. All of the race events begin at Trinity Center, located at 640 Holly Avenue, and include:

  • 8 a.m. — The Dynamic Quest Mile ($20, $15 early registration) is a competitive mile run that is new to the Triad and provides serious runners with an elite challenge.
  • 8:30 a.m. — The Fun Run ($10) is a short, easy race for children and families.
  • 8:45 a.m. —The 5k Walk for Wellness, Run for Your Life ($25, $20 early registration) is 5K course that travels through Downtown Winston-Salem.

Participants who want to do both the Dynamic Quest Mile and the 5K can register for both ($40, $30 early registration). The first 300 registrants for the event receive a t-shirt, and all registrants are eligible for prizes.

This is such a fun race! I went last year and my entire family had a total blast. There were fun activities for the kids, great exercise in the downtown area for me, and something more challenging for my husband who's a more experienced runner. Plus, my mother was in town that weekend, and she sat on the side and cheered us all on! I'd definitely recommend it--especially for such a great cause!
