Edwin’s Way 5K honors the memory of Edwin Smith, who lost his life suddenly in January, 2010, to viral cardio-myopathy. Mr. Smith was an avid runner and passionate supporter of the GUMC Youth Ministry.
Proceeds of the race have purchased new robes for Testimony Youth Choir, and Worship Band equipment. Proceeds from 2011-2014 were used to pay for the development and construction of the Trinity Centre at McVay Gardens. In 2017 the race funded new robes and candle lighters for our acolytes. In 2017, the Edwin’s Way Endowment Fund was created to support programming at the Trinity Centre. Additionally, each year a portion of the race proceeds will be designated for project(s) requested by the Youth Advisory Council.
The race route begins and ends at Nashoba Park in Germantown (8000 Wolf River Parkway), using the beautiful Greenway. Details, including the race route, awards categories and online registration are available at: racesonline.com/events/edwin-s-way-5k
