Good Samaritan Shelter to hold sixth annual Run by the River

Good Samaritan Shelter will be holding its sixth annual Run By The River and Walk for the Homeless on May 17 at Longford Park on the Schuylkill River Trail. From Bridge Street in Phoenixville, head toward Produce Junction. Turn right on Walnut Street then go 1.4 miles to Longford Park. All money raised from the event will support the work of the Good Samaritan Shelter.

Participants can register as an individual or as part of a team. All participants who register by May 3 will receive a tech shirt, refreshments, access to toilet facilities, timed finish and instant results. Awards are given to top finishers in each age category. This year, at no extra cost, participants can enter for our great raffle items.
