Superhero Spectacular Weekend


-   Special Olympics Forsyth County and The Gateway YWCA are teaming up to offer a weekend of fun activities, June 26-27, 2015.  June 26th will be a Zumbathon; June 27th will be a Fun Run, 5K, and 10K races.  We will have a block party for everyone to enjoy on June 27th.  The reason for Superhero Spectacular is to raise money for Special Olympics athletes in Forsyth County to have a 1-year membership to The Gateway YWCA.  To register for the race:  http://www.active.com/winston-salem-nc/running/distance-running-races/superhero-spectacular-2015?int=.  If you would like to support an athlete towards a membership or volunteer for this event, please contact Lisa Kiser at lisak@cityofws.org or 727-2425.
