Generosity 5k 2019
Date: October 6th, 2019
Time: 7:00am - 11:00am
Location: Fairmount Park - Please Touch Museum

Last year with 32 participants, we raised over 25k! This year, we're back and hoping to raise $30,000 for SEAMAAC programs. The race will feature a live DJ, pre-race warm-up & stretch, a professional announcer, and one-of-a-kind SEAMAAC event gear. We will be joined by other non-profits from the Philadelphia area. Remember, you do not have to be a ‘runner’, you can walk the entire 5k! The most important aspect is to get your friends and family involved with the fundraising effort.
