Halloween 5K benefits local United Way

 

SALISBURY, Md. – If you were near Salisbury University, Saturday morning, you might have seen zombies running around. That’s because the Salisbury University Student United Way was hosting its 6th Annual Halloween Zombie 5K race and one mile walk.

There was also a dance performance to the song Thriller, music, food, a costume contest and awards ceremony. Organizers say the event has grown every year and it’s all to support a good cause that directly benefits our local community.

“So this is our biggest fundraiser. We hope to raise around $6,000 all going to the United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore and all of their programs and their mission which involves helping 1 in 3 people on the Lower Eastern Shore actually in the areas of financial stability, health and education,” says Brielle McQuiston, President of the SU Student United Way.

The United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore is now in its 75th year. If you’d like to learn more about upcoming events, how to volunteer or donate: click here.
