Let’s get moving and raise some money for local charities! This year the Crest Foods Walking Club will participate in seven local 5K events to raise money for Kreider Services. Kreider Services helps provide programs for people with developmental disabilities, and they’ll be able to disperse our donation to whichever program(s) they feel need it most. Our goal is to donate $10,000!

Last year we raised $9,000 for Home of Hope in Rochelle, a charity offering support and emergency shelter for victims of domestic abuse.

See you there!
