Harvest 5K

11:00 AM - 5:00 PM 2 weeks after

This is a very popular annual event that combines a love of health and wellness with doing good in the world. Each year, the committee decides on a charity and runs a 5K race with the proceeds to benefit the chosen organization. Past recipients include Central Elementary School, the Victory House (a shelter for homeless vets) and this year's proceeds will go to Central Elementary. Virtual run, a 1K Fun Run, snacks, prizes, t-shirts and medallions make this a great way to give to others.

DESCRIPTION

Due to safety concerns related to COVID-19, Harvest 5K has made the painful decision to convert this year's run/walk event into a virtual event. No face to face racing will be held. Instead, you get the freedom to finish the race anywhere and anytime between Oct 11-31.

Shirts and medals are optional to anyone who registers starting July 5. Deadline to register and still get a shirt and medal is on Sep 30.

Beneficiary

All proceeds will benefit the students of the Central Elementary School of Allentown PA on 9th Street and Turner.  Central Elementary is one of 15 elementary schools located in the city of Allentown. Most of its students are very poor with 89% of families classified as Low Income, and everyone receives Free/Reduced Lunch. It serves a community with a poverty rate of 38.64% of the City's population. (2013 Census). 

We aim to raise $5,000 to help restore the school’s playground, replace benches and picnic tables. The playground is heavily used, not only by the school, but also by the community.
