Behind the Scenes
5K Generosity Run Benefits Need in Deed

What will you be doing at 9:00am on Sunday, October 29th? For 25 members of the Need in Deed family, the answer is “participating in a 5K to benefit Need in Deed!”

This energetic band of walkers and runner set a fundraising goal of $12,500 and they have already raised almost $9,000 to date. Proceeds from the event will go toward Need in Deed’s ongoing support of service-learning projects in more than 110 3rd-8th grade classes across the city.

Generosity Series first launched their multi-charity 5K in Philadelphia in 2014, and Need in Deed has been a proud participant since the beginning. This year’s course begins and ends at the Art Museum, and we expect the event will once again serve as a fun and inspiring opportunity to connect with our supporters and the city’s nonprofit community.
