Meiji-Stauffer’s Holds First 5K Run

Run Like an Animal A Huge Success!


Meiji-Stauffer's Run Like an Animal 5K event did far more than provide an opportunity for runners to compete in a local race, it generated a priceless donation of $15,000 that will impact the lives of so many food-insecure York County residents.  

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 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
