Fitness Gift Ideas “Yule” Love

Gifting experiences has gained a lot of popularity over the past few years. The Greensboro Science Center has a couple of unique gift ideas for those of you with active friends and family members.

The adventure-seeker in your life will love the rush of adrenaline that comes from conquering SKYWILD, our treetop adventure park. Featuring 60 elements located as high as 45 feet above the Greensboro Science Center’s zoo, SKYWILD is a great gift for anyone who might enjoy an experience that challenges both mind and body.

SKYWILDGift certificates to SKYWILD are available online at skywild.org. These gift certificates will allow participants two hours of adventure as they traverse the treetops on a series of exciting elements. After conquering the course, participants can spend the rest of the day exploring the GSC’s aquarium, museum, and zoo with the complimentary admission that’s included in each SKYWILD adventure.

If SKYWILD is a little too adventurous for the active person in your life, or if you’re looking for a gift for younger athletes, give them a reason to run with registration to a race that supports an important cause – African penguin conservation! The Tuxedo Trot: Run for the Penguins will take place on Saturday, May 21.

Tuxedo TrotA gift registration enables the recipient to enjoy a fun, family-friendly 5K that takes runners along a beautiful two-loop course along Lawndale Drive and through Country Park. Following the race, runners are invited to spend the day enjoying all that the GSC has to offer with complimentary general admission. Registration is just $30 through January 31 and can be purchased online at tuxedotrot.com. Kids’ Fun Run registration is available for children ages 10 and younger who might not want to participate in the full 5K.
