In 2013, HanesBrands donated 5.3 acres of land to Fulton Family YMCA to build a wellness park, and on May 20, the YMCA of Northwest NC branch celebrated its new Champion Field during a dedication ceremony.
The dedication highlighted the new athletic complex that includes two multi-purpose fields and a walking track, with outdoor exercise elements and a pavilion slated to be built in the future. The project has already gained support from the community. Winston-Salem Lacrosse was one of the first donors to support the field construction and currently practices and plays games on the fields.
The complex will not only provide outdoor athletic space, but space to expand the Fulton Family YMCA summer day camp and serve more children in the local community.
Hanes donated the property as part of the sale of the former Weeks hosiery and R&D facility.
