Forsyth County News

Forsyth County’s five public high schools will clean to compete for an annual trophy in support of the county’s Special Olympics program next weekend.

Schools will hold separate car washes from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. April 18, with all proceeds benefitting Special Olympics of Forsyth, which hosts a range of athletic and social activities for special needs students throughout the year.

The third annual car wash challenge will take place a day after the Special Olympics Spring Games, which will showcase typical Olympic competitions for participants and their high school “buddies,” according to Annemarie Raygor with the county program.

“Afterward, we all meet at Norman’s Landing, and whoever raised the most money wins the challenge,” Raygor said. “They keep the trophy for the year at the school.”

Forsyth Central High raised the most money last year, while West Forsyth High took home the inaugural trophy by raising nearly $3,000.

Car wash locations are:

* Forsyth Central High: Home Depot on Market Place Boulevard

* Lambert High: Subway at 3130 Mathis Airport Road (running 9 a.m.-Noon)

* South Forsyth High: Norman’s Landing at 365 Peachtree Blvd.

* West Forsyth High: Hwy. 9 and Midway Building Supply

* North Forsyth High: Coal Mountain Elementary School on Hwy. 369
