This year we will be celebrating our Sixteenth Annual Robin Run 5K and One Mile Fun Run. The event will be held on November 9, 2019 at First Presbyterian Church, located at 414 Sunset Road in Wilson. The 5K race begins at 10am and will include the Girls on the Run and STRIDE participants and their running buddies. The mission of both programs is to inspire children to be joyful, healthy and confident, using a fun, experience-based curriculum which creatively integrates running.
Robin Givens exuded all that the YMCA, Girls on the Run and STRIDE stand for. She was a loving mother dedicated to nourishing and encouraging her family. She worked patiently with children teaching them the importance of fitness, motivating them to learn and deepening their moral values. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, promoting spirit, mental and physical well-being.
In honor of her spirit, the Wilson Family YMCA dedicated the youth wing of the current facility to Robin naming it the Robin Givens Youth Center. The past Robin Runs were instrumental in creating this center. As we continue to improve and grow, we need your continued support.
