Why support The Delaware KIDS Fund?
The Delaware KIDS Fund helps local Kids In Distressed Situations. This year all 5K proceeds will fund a Food Pantry Program for Richey Elementary School in Newport, DE. This is a much-needed resource. Did you know 65% of the students at Richey live at or below the poverty line? The proceeds will stock this pantry for 3 years, immediately! Let’s meet this goal together.
Last year’s race raised $44,000 to help children throughout Delaware. Delaware KIDS Fund 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.
M & T Bank presents the race supported by Harvey, Hanna & Associates, along with many other community-involved businesses.
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.
The USATF Certified course starts at James Street Tavern extends to Banning Park and back to the tavern. Here is a link to the course map. Each registrant will receive unisex tech t-shirt.
