SECCA to Hold a Ruff Race 5k + Dog Run Fundraiser to Support SECCA’s Volunteer and Outdoor Programs
The Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art (SECCA) is presenting a Ruff Race 5K and Dog Run fundraiser to support its volunteer group, the SECCA CONNECTors, and expand its nature trails and outdoor programs. The Ruff Race and Dog Run will take place on Saturday, June 16 at 9 a.m. at SECCA, which is located at 750 Marguerite Drive in Winston-Salem. This event is open to the public and their dogs. No pre-registration is required, participants can register at the door.
The Ruff Race and Dog Run will celebrate SECCA’s dedicated volunteer group, SECCA CONNECTors, and will highlight newly expanded access to SECCA’s 32-acre estate—which includes a lake, formal gardens, and over a mile of nature trails. Local vendors, food trucks, games, and art activities will be on hand and admission to the museum is free as always. Registration for the 5k and fun run is $5 for individuals and $10 per group, which includes a bandana and dog bag dispenser. The proceeds from this run will benefit SECCA’s dedicated volunteer group, SECCA CONNECTors.
The Ruff Race 5k + Dog Run is made possible through the support of our presenting sponsor Great Outdoor Provision Company and Truliant Federal Credit Union.
SECCA CONNECTors donate their time and energy to ensure that the museum can fulfill its purpose as a bridge of art, technology, and engagement. SECCA depends on the support from the community and volunteers to fulfill their mission and present meaningful programs to encourage the accessibility of contemporary art to visitors of all ages. These CONNECTors go above and beyond to achieve this, and the fun run will directly benefit their efforts.
