This year is the 10th Annual Race Against Poverty!
We’d love to have your support as an Event Sponsor to help make this possible.
The event has grown significantly in the past few years, becoming a premiere race in the region, and we want to continue to build on that momentum. Last year we had 782 participants, and an estimated 1500 people in attendance at the event, and raised a net of $30,000 for the cause. We know the potential to see this grow into a larger impact event is right at our fingertips.
This year the event will be postponed to the evening of Saturday, August 29th, down Main Street in Chambersburg. We are aware that this event may need to become a virtual event, but have some exciting plans for how to promote Event Sponsors who are still able to support this work in this time of pandemic and economic crisis. All proceeds from the event go directly to the Support Circles initiative in Franklin County, facilitated by a local nonprofit called South Central Community Action Programs (SCCAP). Our goal this year is to raise over $40,000!
You have the opportunity thru event sponsorship of the Race Against Poverty to partner with us in seeing families move out of poverty and build long term economic stability. We know many families will be facing difficult times ahead, but together we can build a stronger community with hope for the future!
