Ashland Harvest Run, Pumpkin Walk upcoming

Posted on Thursday, July 31, 2014 at 12:12 pm

Fundraising is an important part of the non-profit world. Over the past few years, Hanover Safe Place has experienced great success in partnering with civic organizations for fundraising events.

With that thought in mind, HSP has joined forces with the GFWC Ashcake Woman’s Club for a new event Oct. 18. Combining two established runs, they have formed the Ashland Harvest Run and Pumpkin Walk.

The event will start at 8 a.m. at Ashland Carter Park and will consist of a 10K run, 5K walk/run and one-mile family event through the Town of Ashland.  Taking the established, certified courses of the Ashland Harvest Run, and adding the family-fun event of the Hanover Safe Place Pumpkin Run, this new event is promising to be a great day.

Organizers are excited to see where this new collaboration takes both groups, and are enjoying working together, spreading the word about the event and important issues in our community.
