This year's recipient:
The Salvation Army's Food Pantry was chosen as the benefit for event proceeds.
The Salvation Army of Williamsport is here to help local families in Lycoming County with their emergency needs. Often this is food for the table. They understand that money for food is short at certain times during the month or year for all families and their mission is to make sure no one goes hungry, ever! Donations are now being accepted on this race page.
