The 7th Annual Delaware KIDS Fund 5K is almost here! 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 $60,000 to help children throughout Delaware. This year there will be two Races; the ‘7th Annual Delaware KIDS Fund 5K’ race will take place in Newport, DE on August 6th and the ‘Inaugural Que Pasa 5K’ race will happen at Que Pasa Restaurant in Dewey Beach, DE  on August 13th.

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.

It is a non-profit organization founded by Thomas J. Hanna, VP of Harvey Hanna & Associates, a commercial real estate company.
