Proceeds benefit the Warminster Food Bank, which serves over 650 families per month in Bucks and Montgomery counties. Ninety-five percent of donations go toward providing food to families in the community. Despite it being rainy last year, the race welcomed 125 participants and raised $11,000.
“We were looking for an event that would help raise funds to support our mission,” said Mike Cerino, Warminster Food Bank director. “We decided on a 5K run and walk, since it would be a fun event for runners and walkers of all ages and abilities. Last year’s run and walk was a resounding success, even in the rain, and we’re hoping for a bigger turnout this year.”
