There will be something super about this year’s WSLM Rock N’ Run with the Washington County Family YMCA on Saturday, Sept. 30. 

“Since we pitched this idea to the YMCA five years ago as a fundraiser, we continue to think up new themes and with the success of superhero movies we felt it would be fun to have everyone come out and dress as their favorite superhero and walk or run the course,” said Becky White, President and CEO of Salem Media. 

The 5th Annual Rock ‘N Run 5K: Super Hero Edition will kick off Saturday September 30th

Registration begins at 8am, race starts at 9am

Early registration is $20 and guaranteed a t-shirt on or before Sept. 15th.  

After Sept. 16th, late registration is $25.

“It’s been a positive way to partner with the YMCA and the community to get people involved and introduced to fitness and running – or even just moving around,” said White. “Parents with children and all ages come and participate in this event which continues to raise money for the YMCA, which helps its members with their fitness goals.”

“We are really looking forward to a fun event,” said Kristy Purlee, CEO of the Washington County Family YMCA. “This event not only promotes fun and health, it also promotes social responsibility,” said Purlee.

The YMCA offers financial assistance to families and individuals to ensure that everyone is able to participate in their mission. All proceeds raised from the 5k event will aid in making the financial assistance program possible.
