WINTERVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - A local martial artist is encouraging people to stay active in October and support the food bank at the same time.

Byung Lee’s Taekwondo in Greenville is hosting a virtual 5K to benefit the Food Bank of Central and Eastern Carolina.

It costs $30 to register, and participants are encouraged to take photos of themselves at the start and finish of their own 5K runs and then post them to social media.

Runners will get a t-shirt and a medal, and at the end of the month, they will get a free week of Taekwondo lessons and the opportunity to break a board held by a certified taekwondo master or instructor.

Lee says it’s a fun way to stay active during the pandemic and also help the community.

“Get out and enjoy the beautiful weather and exercise with your family. This is a great way to enjoy this time with your family,” said Lee.

He said they are hoping to provide over 20,000 meals. You can contact the academy to sign up at
