Tens of thousands of dollars were raised this past Saturday in what has become one of the most anticipated events in Newport each summer — the Delaware KIDS Fund 5K, which attracted hundreds of runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. This is the second year in a row that Tyler Muse, age 22, has crossed the finish line first. Muse, with a time of 18:04, lives near the town of Newport. And Elizabeth Swierzbinski, age 29 and from Wilmington, took home the top prize among women with a time of 18:59.

Presented by Harvey, Hanna & Associates, Hyatt Place Dewey Beach, My Sherpa, AWE Oil, M&T Bank, Rehoboth Beach Running Co., race organizers have added a second event for beach-goers this year: the inaugural Que Pasa 5K for the Delaware KIDS Fund in Dewey Beach, which will take place this Saturday. Race event information and results can be found at Races2Run.com.

The Delaware KIDS Fund provides essential goods and services, such as clothing, shelter and food, as well as scholarships and grants to at risk Kids in Distressed Situations. “We are immensely grateful to our many sponsors without whom this would not be possible,” said Ryan Kennedy with Harvey, Hanna & Associates. “And we are so excited to bring this race to Dewey Beach where we hope for another fantastic turnout on the 13th.”
