GERMANTOWN, TN (WMC) - This weekend you can exercise for a good cause with ‘Wings on the Wolf.' 

It's a family friendly event on the beautiful new section of Wolf River Boulevard in Germantown. 

The 5k run/walk and 3 hour bike ride will raise money to support WINGS Cancer Foundation's Wellness Program. 

The best part is that 100% of the funds stay local to help cancer survivors.

Both the 5k and the bike ride will be on a closed course between Kimbrough Road and Farmington Boulevard on the new section of Wolf River Boulevard. 

The chip timed 5k starts Saturday, June 20 at 7:30 a.m. at Wolf River Boulevard and Kimbrough Road. The course is expected to be flat and fast. 

Immediately after the 5k, a Family Fun Ride will start on the same closed course. All ages are welcome.

Then comes the long event, a three hour bike ride for riders of all skill levels.  

It's a closed circuit loop of 3.4 miles. Organizers say it's not a race, but competitive riding is encouraged. There will be an awards ceremony following the 5k and 3 Hour Bike Ride.
