Family Service Association of Northeastern Pennsylvania (FSA NEPA) and members of the Pauly Friedman 5K Family Walk/Run met recently to organize the fifth anniversary race slated for Sunday, Aug. 11 at Misericordia University on Lake Street, Dallas.

Registration for this 3.1 mile event is at 8:30 a.m. with the race beginning at 9:30 a.m. Pre-registration is suggested with the first 300 registrants guaranteed an official event t-shirt. Walk-ups will be accepted on race day.

The event committee encourages all generations within families, business employers and their employees, and community organizations to come together as teams to join in and participate in the event.

Teams, with a minimum of five participants or more, are now forming and the team who raises the most donations will receive the “Answer the Call Traveling Trophy” as part of the team challenge.

All participants must raise a minimum of $25 in donations to receive awards. Teams may consist of both walkers and runners.

A Post-Race Awards Party for race participants to receive their trophies and medals will be held in the John & Mary Metz Dining Hall of the Banks Student Center at Misericordia University. Music, food and entertainment will be available for all. Sponsors for this year’s race include FSA NEPA, Generation 2 Generation, WNEP 16, One Source Staffing, Magic 93, The Citizens’ Voice, and Misericordia University.
