A NOTE FROM OUR CHAIR MEMBERS

“We1re thrilled to be promoting healthy living in the Lehigh Valley with the 2nd Annual Heidelberg 5K and are so grateful for the growing list of sponsors, benefactors, volunteers and participants that are coming together to support the mission!” – Brian Lenhart, Heidelberg 5k Chair & Member of Heidelberg Church Consistory

 

“We were so grateful for the amazing support of all of our sponsors and donors. Our goal to keep sponsors within the local community was a big one and it was great to see such local participation. We received overwhelming support from BB&T Bank, CAT Country, Lehigh Valley Presses, The New Tripoli Bank & Neffs Bank just to name a few. Without their support we would not be able to get this event off the ground. We look forward to working with our community organizations in the upcoming years.” – Amber Kinney, Sponsorship Chair, Heidelberg 5k

 

“The Kellyn Foundation’s mission is to develop, support, facilitate and implement programs that encourage family and community physical and emotional wellness, while focused on healthy lifestyles. This collaboration on the Heidelberg 5K Run and kids 1-mile walk underscores our mission. We hope to continue working with this community as we gain access to funding to bring our educational programs to more school districts. I encourage everyone to be involved with this event with their families, to benefit this and surrounding communities for years to come.” – Eric Ruth, CEO, Kellyn Foundation.
