Thank you to all of our sponsors and participants of our "In Step for Kids" 5K Run/Walk 2020. Together, we raised more than $4,000 to help our youth mentoring programs in Huntingdon County. A special thank you to the Huntingdon Elks Lodge 976 who in addition to being a table sponsor, presented an additional check of $620 which came from the generous hearts of their members and team participants.

Also, big congratulations to the winners of all of our age groups, but also to our 5K Overall Best Runners, Sam Schilling and Ella McKrum (pictured), and our Overall Best Walkers, Russ Sharpless and Donna Scholtz (pictured).

Hope to see everyone next year!
