MySherpa, Newport Rowing Club, Harvey, Hanna & Associates were just three of the many local businesses and organizations in Newport that participated in the 6th annual Delaware KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) Fund 5K on Saturday. Twin Lakes Brewing Company gave away free cups of beer to willing adults after the race, Horizon tossed Frisbees to kids, and the top male and female winners each received $200 Visa gift cards! The race attracted some 300 runners, volunteers, local businesses and organizations — who collectively helped raise $20K for the Delaware KIDS Fund, which provides financial support for food, clothing, and shelter as well as mental health and academic needs.
Harvey, Hanna & Associates, which helped organize and drum up support for their signature fundraising event, would like to thank the many sponsors and Races2Run.com, who helped make this year’s race memorable and successful. Race proceeds will be donated to various youth emergency food relief programs throughout Delaware.
