Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation hosts their 7th annual 5K Milk Run to support children in need, $16K raised from event

DOVER, Del.- The Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation hosted their 7th annual 5K Milk Run and walk this morning in Dover.

We are told that this family affair started at the Buffalo Wild Wings and people were able to run or walk the St. Jones Isaac Branch Trail.

The foundation said this event is all about giving back and all the proceeds go to the Ministry of Caring’s Milk for Children Fund and The Food Bank of Delaware’s Backpack Program.

The foundation coordinator said this year they raised over $16,000.

We are told this event and money raised is special during this time because organizations have not been able to give like they normally do, due to the pandemic.

“Those organizations are ones we built relationships with and they really look forward to getting that money because they really do put it to good use, and we like seeing it be put to good use,” Kali Voshell, the Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation Coordinator, said. “So, it was really important for us to be able to have the event today.”

We are told awards were given out at the end of the race.

The Delaware Farm Bureau Foundation added that social distancing and masks were required.

And they look forward to doing more events in the future help families in need during this time.
