The first ever Project Prom 5K was a great success! 

Thanks to all who participated in and supported the event. We are already looking forward to next year.

Come run!  Come, all!

Clear your dance card and join in the excitement at the first EVER Project Prom* 5K Run and Walk!

April 5 is the date. Hartwood Acres Park is the place. Fun is the vibe. Raising money is the goal.

Everyone can join in. You can run, walk, stroll or roll your way to the festive finish line. Avid runner? Cross the line first (in your ability/age bracket) and you'll win a prize. Got an old prom gown or tux? Sport it and you could be crowned Run King or Queen!

The FUNds we raise will help local high school students who are served through the Department of Human Services go to their prom in style. We'll be able to complement donations by buying jewelry, plus-sized gowns, tuxedo-rental gift certificates and more. 

You can register at the event between 7:30 and 9:00 a.m. and help us make this inaugural year a banner one!
