MATTHEWS, N. C. – Wilson was with Steve Smith earlier this month to preview Steve’s Lace Up Son 5K and talk with Steve about his Steve Smith Family Foundation (S2F2). Today Wilson joined Steve and his family before the Lace Up Son 5K race began in Matthews.
After Wilson had the honor of kicking off the race live on Rising, he took off in a golf cart to try to catch up with Steve as he ran the 5K. Seems the golf cart almost wasn’t a match for Steve’s fast feet. But, Wilson finally caught up with him and after Steve tried to commandeer the cart, he talked with Wilson about the mission and focus of S2F2 and how important the foundation is for him.
Apparently the run took a little more out of Wilson that it did Steve.
The Steve Smith Family Foundation began their annual Lace Up Son Family 5K last year and again this year the event will continue to help raise funds for area YMCAs such as the Siskey, Simmons and Johnston YMCAs as well as the Special Olympics of North Carolina as well as other organizations.
The Lace Up Son 5K began at 8am taking participants through the streets in Matthews and concluded at Stumptown Park. The day will continue to be a family friendly event celebrating Memorial Day and current and veteran members of the military.
