Friends of Granger Paths 5K Run

May 21, 2017 marked another successful community event for Mishawaka. Granger Paths hosted a 5k / fun walk to raise money to build sidewalks around the area; the idea for which was set forth by county Councilman Dale Devon, who hoped the citizens of the area will make use of additional pathways.

 

 

The race was created and managed by the “Friends of Granger Paths,” who worked in partnership with volunteers like members of Team 135. Together, both volunteers and coordinators were able to assist the runners and show gratitude to their community.

 

Over the years, this race has become an annual event that the community looks forward to. Installments of sidewalks are elongated with every time the monetary goal is reached; so far, the organization has raised over $200,000.

 

To assist with the community event, Penn Robotics Team 135 was there to assist with setup, cleanup, and refreshments. Members arrived early and ready to lend a helping hand. Team 135 expresses deep appreciation for the community and people that have supported and enabled them to exist the past 20 years.

 

Over 200 runners participated in Sunday’s event, and the volunteers representing The Black Knights were more than happy to serve their fellow community members. Team 135 fully expects to engage in more serving opportunities in the future.
