Fairfield Food Pantry schedules run

March 7, 2018 by  

The Fairfield Food Pantry is inviting people to participate in their 3rd Annual Spring 5K. They are welcome to run or walk the race, which is in support of the pantry, which has been serving local residents in need since 1997.

The race will take place at Waterworks Park, located in Fairfield on Groh Lane. Registration is open now, and the fee for those who sign up before the day of the race is $30; registering on race day costs $35. All participants will receive a time chip and a t-shirt, and there will be prizes for the top three finishers in the men’s and women’s divisions. Donations of canned food will be gratefully accepted at the event.

The pantry was created to meet a growing need, and depends on donations from the community. Members of the board say that Fairfield has been generous and supportive, and rallied behind the effort.

The race is scheduled for March 24, 2018, a Saturday. The event starts at 9 am, with packet pick-up and registration starting at 8 am. Participants may register at the food pantry on March 22 and 23, between 3 pm and 7 pm, and pick up their t-shirt and Bib at that time.

Events like this can be even more festive if organizers work with a banner printing company to create a banner to decorate the venue.
