Help fight childhood hunger by supporting our Delaware KIDS in NEED this summer, a time when they need it most. Since it started, the race has raised $78,000 to help children throughout Delaware. In Newport, there are 1,100 elementary children. 71% of them live at or below the poverty line. Newport’s event is going to help benefit that 71% specifically. This is the second year for the two Races; the ‘8th Annual Delaware KIDS Fund 5K’ race will take place in Newport, DE on August 5th  and the ‘2nd  Que Pasa 5K’ race will happen at Que Pasa Restaurant in Dewey Beach, DE  on August 12th.

Did you know that 1 in 5 children in Delaware face hunger? According to Ryan Kennedy, the Community Outreach and Business Developer coordinator for the Delaware KIDS Fund, the issue is worse in the summer which is why the run is held in August to raise awareness.

Delaware KIDS Fund is an acronym for ‘Kids in Distressed Situations’ helps at-risk children in Delaware who may face violence, abuse, family financial troubles, or other distressing situations. It is a non-profit organization founded by Thomas J. Hanna, VP of Harvey Hanna & Associates, a commercial real estate company. Proceeds from the event are donated directly to various youth emergency food relief programs throughout Delaware.

The race is presented by M & T Bank and supported by Rehoboth Beach Running Co., MySherpa, Hyatt Place Dewey Beach and Harvey, Hanna & Associates.

As the popularity of the race grows, so does the list of corporate sponsors which helps to make the 5K possible. The Delaware KIDS Fund is thankful for the support of all of the local companies.
