WE RAISED $11,000

We are incredibly grateful to each and every one of you who participated in our 1st Annual DK Movement Cares 5K Run presented by the Air Force. With your unwavering support, we witnessed a tremendous turnout of over 200 participants, helping us raise an astounding $11,000!

A special thank you goes out to all of our community partners, vendors and Eyewitness News Channel for covering our event. Your backing was pivotal in supporting our cause and the two esteemed charities we championed - the Bristol Special Olympics and the Agape House Homeless Outreach.

A very special thanks to Averie's Lemonade for raising $157 in sales and generously donating to the two charities. Your contribution perfectly embodies the spirit of community support we aimed for.
