Several walks/runs scheduled over the next month

Looking for an excuse to get out and enjoy the fall weather (assuming at some point these summer temps will subside)? Well, over the next month and change you'll have three opportunities to do so, all of which benefit great causes.

The first run is the 9th Annual Kimberton Run which takes place on Saturday, October 6th. The race is hosted by the Lions Club of Kimberton and is a 5k. The Lions use the money that is raised to help support various charities. In addition to the 5k, there will also be a 1/2 mile 'Fun Run' for kids.

Event #2 is the 29th Annual CROP Walk which is being held the following day, Sunday, October 7th. There are two courses for the walk, one is a 3k, the other a 10k. Each start and end at the Phoenixville YMCA with registration starting at 1:15. The walk is organized by Church World Services and proceeds are used by them to help raise awareness about and fight hunger. For more info, please see the Pennsylvania CWS/CROP Regional Office website.

Finally, on October 27th, the 21st Annual Citizen Advocacy 5k & 10k will be held at Reeves Park in Phoenixville. Proceeds from the race will support Citizen Advocacy of Chester County, a private, non-profit community based organization which initiates relationships between citizens with developmental disabilities and their neighbors.

Can I add another 5K to your list? While it's not local, the Brain Tumor Society will be holding their 2nd annual Race for Hope on Sunday, November 5th at the Art Museum. Onsite registration begins at 7:30am.

The Race for Hope is an event that dedicated to raising money for brain tumor research and treatment. You can walk or run the 5K (only 3.1 miles).

Hope to see you on the 4th!
