An annual running event held in Bucks County will now be helping those facing one of the toughest moments of their lives. Ed Doyle wrote about the race for TAP Into Doylestown.

This coming weekend, Bucks 5K Series will add a new race to celebrate and honor people who have battled or are battling cancer. The Be Kind 5K will take place at Holicong Park in Buckingham Township on April 15.

Kin Wellness & Support Center is behind the race that is being added to the series after nearly three decades. The nonprofit offers care to over 250 local cancer patients and their caregivers throughout Bucks County. The organization addresses the full needs of cancer patients and their caregivers,which includes any emotional, social, and physical needs.

The registration fees for the newly added race will benefit Kin Wellness & Support Center. The race is an officially certified 5K and as such is expected to attract runners from all across the county.

“The Bucks 5K Series is excited to welcome a new race, the ‘Be Kind 5K,’ as our 7th race,” said series founder Dick Patterson. “The mission of the Kin Wellness & Support Center is a perfect fit with the other community nonprofits in the Series.”
