The Garage Community & Youth Center announced it’s second annual Garage Youth Center 5k Trail Run. This event will take place on Saturday, September 20th at Goddard Park in West Grove, PA. The 5k run will begin at 9:00 AM and the free Kids Fun Run will begin at 10:00 AM.

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.

Adult registration costs $25/person before August 20th and $35/person after August 20th. Student registration costs $15/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/person.

You can register online at www.garageyouthcenter.orgwww.garageyouthcenter.org under our “Happenings” page.

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

The Garage has two centers, in Kennett Square and in West Grove. Organizationally, 500 students pass through our doors annually for tutoring, mentoring, community service opportunities, computer lab use, youth groups and enrichment activities. The Garage exists because of the passion and dedication of an entire community that care about our mission: to empower students to reach their potential academically, socially and spiritually. The effectiveness of the Garage is in large part the result of this partnership with local community organizations, schools, churches, businesses and individuals who share our mission to help our students reach their potential.
