Events >> Lace Up Son Family 5K


The Steve Smith Family Foundation celebrates Memorial Day each year by hosting the Lace Up Son Family 5K. Designed for all ages and skill levels, the course of the race runs through the streets of downtown Matthews before finishing at Stumptown Park.

Proceeds from this race go toward our child healthcare and wellness programs, promoting healthy lifestyles by providing youth with opportunities that may not otherwise be afforded. A portion of proceeds from this event will benefit the Siskey, Simmons and Johnston YMCAs by providing programs and services to children financially unable to participate. We humbly ask participants to join us in impacting the lives of the children that need it most.

Join us every Memorial Day as we we welcome active duty and veteran members of our military, the special needs community, family and friends alike!
