9th Delaware Kids Fund 5k

Kids in Distressed Situations

Post-race party with Twin Lakes Brewery and James Street Tavern

August 4, 2018 – Saturday

Newport, DE

Imagine if you placed a towel on your head after a finishing a 3 mile run, and this towel instantly cooled you down about 10 degrees at contact...that’s what THIS towel does and it will be awaiting your arrival at the finish. Wear as a bandanna or around your neck or tuck it under your hat or waive for help! Wear it proudly on Saturday, Aug., 4th. #communitystrong!

Event Information

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.
