“This brewery is part of a community. 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone, but it is as important as ever to support the local community. This will be our third year partnering with United Way of Tri-County to host the 5K, and while this year may look different, we couldn’t be more excited to be able to work with them again to further the amazing work of this organization,” Sam Hendler, Co-Owner of Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers

Funds raised from your $35 registration fee will help support United Way of Tri-County programs and services in the community. This includes suicide prevention and mental health, early literacy, and hunger relief, all vital services during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are deeply thankful to the running community and our sponsor Jack’s Abby for their continued support; you’re all winners to us,” said Paul Mina, United Way of Tri-County President & CEO. “Although we won’t be able to run and celebrate together after the race this year, with your support we will continue helping people who depend on our programs, so we all still win! So far 2020 has proven to be a challenge for everyone, from the way we live, work, exercise, and play, to the way we support those in need. Running the Jack’s Abby United Way Virtual 5K on your own time and at the location of your choice makes it simple. Participants can feel good
knowing they are helping community members experiencing a truly difficult time.”
