Run Like an Animal A Huge Success!
A great thank you to Meiji-Stauffer for donating $15,000 to the York County Food Bank! This donation will go a long way in our fight to end hunger in York County. We look forward to future partnerships to raise money and awareness to help hungry neighbors in our community.
On June 10th, Meiji-Stauffer held their first ever 5K Run with the proceeds benefiting the York County Food. Thanks to the superb planning and coordination of the Community Involvement Team and the support of many generous community sponsors, the Meiji-Stauffer's Run Like an Animal 5K Run was a huge success. Thank you to the over 100 participants who ran/walked to end hunger in York County!
The race kicked off at Meiji-Stauffer's campus on Belmont Street in York with the sun shining and racers taking their marks. Over 50 volunteers staffed the event to assure that the participants were well informed and directed not to mention being well fed as well!
The racers ages spanned from 5 and 75. The fastest time in The Male Division was run by Justin Krebs, from York, with a time of 15:31.9 and the fastest time for females was run by Brenda Hodge with a time of 18:11.1. Medals were awarded to the top 3 finishers in each age group. Tons of other prizes were given to top finishers in the various age brackets as well as gift bags and door prizes.
The York County Food Bank extends our sincere and humble appreciation to all those from Meiji-Stauffer who made the event possible, to the tremendously generous sponsors for funding the event and to the dedicated participants who took strides to eliminate hunger in York County. Through the combined efforts of all those involved, we are closer to bridging the meal gap in our community so that the 41,000 food insecure residents of York County can be properly fed
