Races will raise funds for research in memory of Super Gav
In memory of Gavin Quimby, better known in Winona as Super Gav, a group of dedicated family and friends are planning a new 5K and Super Kids ½ Mile Race for Saturday, June 29, 2019, at Levee Park in Winona. This new race will highlight the beautiful Levee Park and river views while raising funds for the Leukodystrophy Center at the University of Minnesota’s Masonic Children’s Hospital.
The Super Kids Race will begin at 8:30 a.m. on the main pavilion of Levee Park. Registrants will be given a Super Gav cape and be saluted by the Winona Fire Department as they run by the levee path!
The Super Gav 5K Run/Walk Race will begin at 9 a.m. on the main pavilion of Levee Park and will take race participants on a path across and back the new bridge. Not only will this race raise funds for a worthy cause, but participants will also have an opportunity to see views of the beautiful city.
The race event sponsor, Merchants Bank, along with many other Winona businesses and families, have generously supported this new event with their sponsorship. The deadline to sponsor this event is May 17, 2019.
Early registration for both races is strongly encouraged at www.gavinflyingforacure.com.
