“Egg Scramble” 5K a Success for Ending Hunger

 

This past Saturday, runners and walkers alike, came together in the early morning hours, in Pittsfield to run in Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union’s second 5K run/walk to benefit the several food pantries in the local area.  Thanks to the support of the participants, as well as the many businesses that sponsored it, this event was a resounding success, raising over $1,300, all of which will go to support the food pantries in the Sebasticook Valley.

 

The day was drizzly and overcast, but that did dampen the spirits of the 41 participants, ranging in ages between 16 and 58.  In fact, the cool weather contributed to fast runs for many of the runners.  The fastest overall male finisher was 16-year old Matt McClintock of Athens with a winning time of 17:02, and the fastest overall female finisher was Carrie Pike of Bangor with a winning time of 21:32.

 

Over the last six years, Sebasticook Valley Federal Credit Union has been able to contribute nearly $60,000 to help feed those in need.  SVFCU is grateful to the participants and many sponsors that helped make this event successful.  For more information, call 487-5576 or visit www.svfcume.com.
