Newtown is getting ready for their first 5k race this Saturday, May 5, 2018.

The Knights of Columbus are hosting the first annual Run 4 Hunger to benefit the F.A.I.T.H. Food Pantry which helps many elderly and less fortunate residents. In fact, 29% of Newtown residents qualify for assistance.

Many sponsors from local businesses, grocery stores, restaurants, and more are on board to help out with this great volunteer run facility which recently relocated to the St. Rose of Lima Church Campus in Newtown. 100% of the donation contributions will go directly to F.A.I.T.H. Food Pantry which is run by volunteers.

We are stocking the newly built facility that is bigger and better equipped to suit the needs to the families that could be your neighbors. -Jon Miodonka Run4Hunger-Newtown

KICKS 105.5 will be there on race day. Registration begins at 6:30am. Opening ceremony at 8:15 and then the big race starts at 8:30am.
