YWCA Run for Peace
September 20 @ 5:45 pm - 7:00 pmFree
The YWCA Gettysburg & Adams County invites you to join us in an evening of solidarity. On Wednesday, September 20, the eve of the International Day of Peace, the community is encouraged to participate in the YWCA’s first Run for Peace. This 5K is free and open to the public, and the first 100 participants to arrive will receive a free peace t-shirt thanks to the YWCA’s generous Hallmark Sponsors. Our goal is to bring the community together to remind one another of our common humanity.
So grab your friends, family and sneakers, and meet us in front of Appalachian Brewing Company (70 Presidential Circle) at 5:45 p.m. as we kickoff the International Day of Peace. This fun run (or walk) will cover a 5K course around Adams Commerce Center. Walkers will commence promptly at 6 p.m., followed by runners at 6:30. Those participating are encouraged to use the parking lots of ABC and the Wyndham Gettysburg.
Participants and spectators are encouraged to visit Appalachian Brewing Company before or after the run for a bite to eat. ABC has graciously offered to donate 10% of food proceeds purchased between 5-8:30 p.m. to the YWCA! Together, we will run for peace and raise money for our local YWCA. No registration is necessary to participate.
