Garage Youth Center 5K Trail Run set for Sept. 21

08/21/2013 08:07AM ● Published by ACL

The inaugural Garage Youth Center 5K Trail Run will take place on Sept. 21 at Goddard Park in West Grove. The 5K run will begin at 9 a.m. and the 5K walk will begin at 9:30 a.m.

The run will raise funds for the ongoing operation of the youth centers in Kennett Square and West Grove, including funds to provide safe and reliable transportation for students in Landenberg, Avondale, and Jennersville to the Garage Youth Center in West Grove.

The Garage has two centers, one in Kennett Square and one in West Grove. Students attend for tutoring, mentoring, community service opportunities, computer lab use, youth groups and enrichment activities.

Adult registration for the race is $25 per person and youth registration is $15 per person. Local businesses and community groups are encouraged to organize a team of 10 or more participants, who can register at a discounted rate of $17.50 per person. All registered participants will receive a free race T-shirt and post-race refreshments.

Register online at www.garageyouthcenter.org on the "Happenings" page.

Sponsorship opportunities are still available for local businesses to advertise on the race T-shirts, and volunteers are needed for race day coordination.

To learn more about the Garage or the 5k Trail Run, e-mail Nora Ganow at Nora.ganow@garageyouthcenter.org, or call 610-869-4400.
