WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. -- The Williamstown Community Chest will hold its 14th Fun Run on Saturday.
This community event consists of two races, a 5K run and a 1-mile kids’ run/family walk. The Fun Run races are open to everyone, veteran or first-time runners and daily or occasional walkers. Families with pets and strollers are also welcome to participate. Both race events begin at 8:30 a.m. at the Williamstown Youth Center, 66 School St.
Sign-in and registration begin at 8 a.m. on the day of the race. Online registration, as well as a printable registration form, may be accessed at www.williamstowncommunitychest.org. The registration fee for the 5K race is $15 per runner and for the 1-mile walk/run $5 per participant; children age 5 and under may participate at no charge. The first 75 paid registrants will receive a Community Chest T-shirt. Prizes will be awarded to top finishers in both races. Scholarships are available, made possible by underwriting from MountainOne.
Attendees are also invited to contribute nonperishable food or a personal care item for distribution to local food pantries.
For 95 years, the Williamstown Community Chest has provided funding to local human service agencies and organizations that serve northern Berkshire County. Every dollar contributed to the Chest’s annual fundraising campaign is distributed to its eighteen partner agencies. Thanks to the generosity of the local business community and individual donors, over $300,000 will be distributed in 2022-23.
