Superhero 5K Trail

at Catawba Lands Conservancy

Calling All Superheroes!!! Come dressed up as your favorite superhero, or run as yourself incognito. Sally’s YMCA and Relay For Life East Lincoln are hosting the inaugural Superhero 5K & Fun Run (1-Mile) that will take place on the Forney Creek Trail to raise funds and awareness for the mission of each organization. Sally’s YMCA and Relay For Life East Lincoln are joining forces for the Superhero 5k to make a difference in the East Lincoln community. Race proceeds benefit the YMCA Annual Campaign and Relay For Life East Lincoln. Every day we take on challenges that shape our community’s future – challenges like academic achievement gap, obesity and social isolation. Together with our members, donors, volunteers and community partners, we strengthen our community. Come together with us to honor cancer survivors, spread the word about reducing cancer risk, and raise money to help the American Cancer Society save lives. It’s a great way to honor or remember those in our community that are affected daily by cancer. Who are you racing for?
