The Neighbors Helping Neighbors is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization whose mission is to provide assistance to Westminster residents faced with tragedy and financial difficulties due to circumstances beyond their control. The Westminster Benefit Fund relies completely on the support of local businesses, families, organizations and groups. The Runners Helping Neighbors 5K Run / Fitness Walk has recently become apart of the our annual Westminster NHN Town Benefit Day. This is an enjoyable event for people of all ages. We also added a card making station, available both pre and post-race, to say “Thank You” to our servicemen and servicewomen serving abroad during the holidays. These cards will be sent to Project 351 for Gold Star families to include inside holiday care packages for those away from home on deployment. Following the 5K, there will be a flea market, great food, games, live music and more up on Academy Hill. In addition, if you bring a canned food item for donation to the Westminster Food Pantry you will be entered in our raffle.
The course is comprised of both hilly and flat terrain which is routed along the central Westminster Main Street area. Please note there are two different start times for this event. Walkers will begin at 10:00 a.m. and runners will begin at 10:30 a.m.
