More about the history of this event:
The WOW 5K Run for Wilmington / Kim Forte Walk began to honor the town and the memory of Kim Forte. Forte’s life ended tragically when she was struck by a vehicle while on one of her daily walks.
WOW is a community organization of close to 400 members and does include men and youth. WOW continues to expands its ability to help Wilmington families in need with items such as school supplies, clothing, food, and household goods. What’s more, we help families facing hardships beyond financial need and provide services such as meal deliveries, yard clean up, house keeping, and rides to appointments. This walk also helps to fund scholarships for Wilmington boys and girls that have demonstrated a commitment to community service.
