Results Are In: 

Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our annual 5K!  Because of your sponsorships, donations, participation, and volunteerism, we raised $7000 for the Caring Cupboard and donated over 500 lbs of food!  Kudos, hats off, and to God be the Glory!  If you ran in the race, check out the results by clicking on the link to Pretzel City Sports and finding Palmyra's Race.  Hope to see all of you plus about 100 more next year! 

About the 5K

Gravel Hill United Methodist Church is proud to host our Annual 5K Challenge scheduled for November, 2014. Once again, the 5K will benefit The Caring Cupboard, a local ministry currently serving over 130 families or nearly 1,700 people per week with basic food products and perishable goods. Last year, we were able to donate over $4500 to the Caring Cupboard as a result of our generous sponsors and community support from everyone who came out to run or walk. That's over $11,000 over three years to this invaluable charity organization!  Unlike previous years, however; this year's 5K event begins and ends in front of the Lebanon Valley Brethren Home located at 1200 Grubb Avenue in Palmyra.  The race will wind down Grubb Avenue, turn right on Fir Street, take a left on Colony Drive, turn right on Plaza Drive, enter Londoncroft on Parliament Drive, turn left on Abbey Lane, another left on Oxford Road, and then back the same way to LVBH. Click here for the course map. 

As in years past, all proceeds and canned goods go directly to the Caring Cupboard, and participants and spectators are welcome to bring can goods to help the cause!
