What is the Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth?

Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth is a timed 5K and untimed, family-friendly walk.

Why do we do it?

Proceeds from the run and walk go to local energy assistance programs to help seniors, people with disabilities and low-income families pay their utility bills. The event is held in the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes.
