Run, Dance, Have a Good Time, Help a Vet

The Berks County-based Keystone Wounded Warrior organization will hold two events this Saturday designed to help raise money to help veterans wounded after 9-11.

Keystone Wounded Warriors and Warwick County Park will host the Inaugural Pottstown 5K Wounded Warrior Trail Run to benefit the U.S. military personnel injured on or after Sept. 11, 2001.

One hundred percent of race profits will be donated to Keystone Wounded Warriors to support Pennsylvania wounded warriors. Proceeds are used to help our heroes mentally, physically, financially and professionally.

This event, located four miles west of the intersection of Route 100 and Route 23 and just south of Saint Peters Village, welcomes runners and walkers (competitive and leisure) of all ages and anyone with a patriotic spirit who wants to show support for the troops and veterans. 

The cost is $25, except for children, who can participate for $15.

Registration is from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m. and the race begins at 9 a.m. 

Then, if you're recovered enough, you can spend the evening at the elegant Pottstown Elks Club where music and dancing will be offered from 7 to 11 p.m. as part of the Wounded Warriors Benefit Dance.

The donation is only $10 and music will be from the 1960s, 70s and 80s.

Jimmy K will be the DJ and, once again, all proceeds will benefit Keystone Wounded Warriors.
