The Helpers Fund 5k-10k Races start at the Municipal Center and take the runners through the historic town of Chestertown. They include divisions for both men and women, and a 5k school team fun run. This year, the twenty-first annual event will be held on Saturday, September 21, 2019.

The Helpers Fund, working with the Chestertown Food Pantry, will also hold its Eighth Annual 5k Walk to Fight Hunger in the area. Proceeds from the walk will go to the local food pantry.

Come join us for a day of activities for everyone. Enjoy the races and enjoy the company.

All proceeds from the races assist individuals, families and children facing extreme hardship in their lives.
