Arkwings Smoky Mountain Relay

“Going the Distance for health and wellness”

You are invited to be an active participant in the 205-mile Arkwings Foundation Smoky Mountain Relay in support of Arkwings wellness ministries and three other health related not-for-profit organizations. What makes participation so exciting is you support the effort without having to train, run up mountains or stay up for more than 36 hours.  We are giving you the  opportunity to be a part of this very unique event by asking you to support the  Arkwings’ 12 person relay team, “The Dirty Dozen “A” team, by making a much  needed and tax-deductible contribution to the Arkwings Foundation.
The Smoky Mountain Relay will be May 7 and 8 with the 205-mile trek beginning outside of Ashville, NC. (See for details.)
