In the organization's first 5K, the Assistance Center of Towson Churches raised more than $10,000.
Hundreds of runners, volunteers and even a few pets came to Goucher College on Sunday to show their support for the Assistance Center of Towson Churches. The organization's first Call to ACTCion 5K run and 1 1/2 mile walk drew 279 participants and dozens more volunteers. The Towson nonprofit, an ecumenical group of 48 area churches, offers food, rent assistance, utility aid, transportation and medical care for needy residents in central and northern Baltimore County. The race raised over $10,000 for the group. Reader and volunteer Ruth Schaefer sent us these photos. Disclosure: Your intrepid editor ran, too, finishing his first 5K with a time of 30:34.93.
