Walk Run SpinWALK, RUN, SPIN AT THE TIKI HUT

The newest Boys & Girls Club of Hilton Head Island fundraiser offers a whole new way to burn calories and work up a sweat — all while watching the waves roll in.

Walk, Run, Spin the Beach will be held May 12 at Coligny Beach, featuring a multifaceted workout that will get hearts pumping for a good cause. The hard-packed sands and cooling sea breezes of Coligny Beach are the perfect setting for a 5K or 10K walk/run along the water’s edge. Or stay put and join an energetic spin class led by a team of talented instructors on the deck of the world-famous Tiki Hut. Or, of course, you could do both.

Dominique Williams was a promising athlete and musician before he became a statistic, another victim of a nationwide epidemic. Milton was determined to preserve his memory while helping to save someone else’s child from the same fate.
