  Here’s an opportunity to get the family outside to get some exercise, enjoy the mild spring weather and support a great cause.

Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation will hold its 6th annual 5K Milk Run/Walk on Saturday, May 11, at Buffalo Wild Wings, 680 S. Bay Road (across from the Blue Hen Corporate Center) in Dover.

All net proceeds will go to the Ministry of Caring’s “Milk for Children Fund” which serves nutritious meals at no cost of homeless and hungry children, starting with a glass of milk, and The Food Bank of Delaware’s Backpack Program which provides food to at-risk children on days when federal school meal programs are not available. Runners and walkers will transverse the flat, scenic rural landscape of the St. Jones Isaac Branch Trail. The trail is paved, which makes it perfect for running strollers. Registration begins at 8 a.m. A free Kiddie K for youth 10 and under starts off at 8:50. The Milk Run itself starts at 9.

This is a TriSports “sanctioned race.” All participants will receive a quality 2019 Milk Run 5K Run/Walk Performance Tech Shirt, and there are awards for top finishers in several categories.

Cost to register is $25 until May 4; $30 after that and on event day. Register online at

Or, make checks payable to Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation and mail to TriSports, 2772 Hazlettville Road, Dover, DE 19904. For questions, contact [email protected]

If you cannot participate but would like to show your support, register as a “Silent Hero.” The public is encouraged to attend in support of agriculture, all while supporting this great cause.
