Yuengling Light Lager Jogger 5k 2016
EVENT DATE: Apr 09, 2016
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 09, 2016
The Yuengling Light Lager Jogger is a 5k run/walk that starts and finishes at America's oldest brewery, in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. In 2015 the race, sponsored by Yuengling, sold out in less than 3 days with 3,000 runners. All runners are treated to brewery tours, live music, free Yuengling Light, wonderful charity auction items and other goodies!
The Yuengling Light Lager Jogger is proud to announce Operation Gratitude as our official charity partner for the fourth year in a row. In 2015 we raised close to $10,000 and hope to increase that to over $15,000 in 2016.
Operation Gratitude annually sends 150,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene and hand-made items, plus personal letters of appreciation, to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, Wounded Warriors, Care Givers and to individually named U.S. Service Members deployed overseas. Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our Active Duty and Veteran communities, and provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation to members of our Military. Each package contains donated product valued at $75-100 and costs the organization $15 to assemble and ship. Since its inception in 2003, Operation Gratitude volunteers have shipped more than One Million Care Packages.
