April 1, 2015
Tucker Community Foundation’s Run For It campaign kicked off April 1 with teams from around the region already in high gear. At the close of the first day of registration, 12 teams were registered with many more expected before the July 1 deadline. The annual 2k walk/5k race raises funds and awareness for community causes in Barbour, Grant, Mineral, Preston, Pocahontas, Randolph and Tucker counties, WV and Garrett County, MD.
Over the next six months teams will garner support by recruiting team members and team sponsors with the goal of leveraging large cash awards to donate to their cause. Unrestricted funds of Tucker Community Foundation combined with generous Race Sponsor support provides motivation for the young and old, and everyone in between, to participate in a healthy activity and community philanthropy. As race sponsors up the ante, more and more teams will enter the program. Last year more than 50 teams competed for $81,000 in race day awards.
