2nd Annual Gardiner Youth Hockey Day of Play 5K Run and Walk
Gardiner, Maine

August 10, 2013 - August 10, 2013

Join us for the second annual 5K run and walk and be part of helping two organizations. First, you'll be helping Gardiner Youth Hockey Association continue to provide a strong hockey program at an affordable price to all children who want to play the game of Hockey. Secondly, $5.00 of every paid registration will be directly donated by GYHA to the community Backpack Program. This program was started by Food for Thought Ministries, and it is organized in the Gardiner community by the Gardiner Free Methodist Church partnered with the First Baptist Church and Good Shepherd's Food Bank. The Backpack Program provides backpacks of food to the schools of MSAD 11. There are children within the community whose only meal they will get during the day is the meal they eat while at school. During the school year, backpacks provide essential food to these children on the weekends. Additionally, each registered runner/walker will receive a commemorative Tee shirt.
