Gravel Hill Spring Run 5K
Saturday, March 23, 2019
9:00 am: 5K Run
All proceeds benefit The Caring Cupboard
The Spring Trail Run is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2019. Festivities begin at 8:30 am with the race start time slated for 9:00 am. Walkers, runners and those who like to get muddy, will converge on Gravel Hill UMC to compete in our new trail run. This is the second in a soon-to-be Four Season Race Series. Our beneficiary will continue to be the Caring Cupboard. The Caring Cupboard, located on Railroad Street in Palmyra, is a local food bank currently serving over 130 families or close to 1,700 individuals per week with basic food supplies along with perishable and non-perishable goods. A food collection area will be available on site the morning of the race for those participants wishing to donate food and/or non-perishables. Since its inception in 2011 and through the generosity of local business sponsors and race day registrations, Gravel Hill UMC has donated over $25,000 to the Caring Cupboard. Additionally, through participant donations, over 1,200 pounds of food have been donated to the ministry. Thank you for supporting this local mission. Back by popular demand, participants and their families will be treated to pre- and post-race music, food, coffee from 3J’s, hot cocoa, and prizes!
