Description

Join us for our 5th Annual Gobble Wobble benefiting United Way of Forsyth County. 

***WE HAVE ADDED A NO SHIRT OPTION FOR THE 5K EVENT & Kids Fun Run***

We have limited adult shirt sizes available so we have added a no shirt option at a reduced cost. The no shirt options will NOT include a lightweight hoodie/tshirt. This option is available for those who want to race in person but missed the opportunity to sign up for this event earlier. Again, runners who sign up for this event will not receive a shirt.

Distances:
  • 5K
  • Kids Fun Run

KIDS FUN RUN:  The Kids Fun Run is for those that want to have a little bit of 1K fun on Thanksgiving Day. Kids receive a tee and a fun run medal. 

RACE DAY IS THANKSGIVING DAY! THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 26, 2020

We will have wave starts to accommodate social distancing so please register for the time you would like to start. 

United Way of Forsyth County, which was founded in 1989, has been working to help bridge the gap between the needs that exist, the services that are provided, and the cost of making those services available to the folks who need them. 

Today, we remain committed to our goal of continuing that support and expanding our programs to include raising awareness of the needs and services that exist within our communities, to continued measurement of the priority of needs, to facilitating the formation of partnerships and collaborations to address unmet needs, and to cultivate greater support of local providers through volunteer coordination efforts.

United Way Mission: To improve lives in our community by mobilizing the caring power and spirit of our citizens.

United Way Vision: To be a community where all people have the opportunity to engage, thrive and achieve a better quality of life.
