Description

The Feet for the Street 5K, sponsored by Leonard Ryden Burr Real Estate, was created to raise awareness and much needed financial support for the Winston-Salem Street School, a private, nonprofit alternative educational option for at-risk high school students in the Forsyth County area. The Street School combines small class sizes, caring, individualized attention, and an unwavering belief that the students we serve, when given a second chance, can not only thrive in high school, but be better prepared for success in life as well. 

In the last 14 years, 200 students have overcome personal issues and learning difficulties to graduate and receive an accredited high school diploma from the Street School. These are students who many had little hope for and who in most cases, had very limited expectations for themselves before coming to the Street School. Since the Street School is a nonprofit organization, your support directly impacts our ability to provide life-changing services for our students. By participating in events like the Feet for the Street 5K, you are making a difference!

Feet for the Street 5K description:

We have recently made a couple adjustments to the course, due to water washing out parts of the Greenway near the lake. The Feet for the Street course will now start and finsh on the Salem Lake trail, directly beside the playground, parking lot and restroom facilities at the main entrance to the lake. This will make for a wonderful venue for all who attend, their families and our vendors. We look forward to seeing you soon!. A water station will be on the course, near the half-way point. Custom designed t-shirts, refreshments, and awards for overall and age group winners will be provided for participants. Award categories: 

Top 3 Overall Winners - Male and Female
Top 3 Winners in each Age Group - Male and Female
Age Groups: 14 and under, 15-19, 20-24, 25-29, 30-34, 35-39, 40-44, 45-49, 50-54, 55-59, 60-64, 65-69, 70-74, 75-79, 80 and over
