Funds raised from the event are directed each year to local organizations that assist residents in need in the region, focusing this year on local Veterans enrolled in the Homeless Veterans Program through the Wilkes-Barre VA Hospital.

“The entire MetroCast team looks forward to bringing this event to the community each year.  We are so fortunate to have so many volunteers that give of their time to plan and help on the day of the event, and are grateful for the members of this community who participate in the 5K,” said MetroCast General Manager Tom Carey.

Like last year, proceeds from the event will again support area Veterans. “This year the proceeds will go to the homeless Veterans program at the Wilkes-Barre VA Hospital, which provides transportation services, social service assistance, rehabilitation equipment, recreation programs, activities, homeless Veteran’s services, holiday gifts, and more,” said MetroCast Marketing Manager, Chrissy Carey.

 “We are grateful to the MetroCast Foundation and our many sponsors for the support they have given to this important cause,” she added.

Registration for the event is 7:30 AM – 8:45 AM and the entry fee is $25.  The course is challenging for experts, yet easy enough for walkers.  All ages are invited to enter.  Medals will be awarded for the top three men and women finishers.  Anyone registered by February 28 is guaranteed a “MetroCast Giving Back 5K Run/Walk” dry-fit t-shirt. A complimentary hot breakfast will be served after the race.
