Wayne Bank Supports NEPA 5K Run for ALS on May 30th

Scranton, PA – On Saturday, May 30th, 2015, The NEPA ALS Foundation will host the second annual NEPA 5k for ALS Run along with a 1 Mile Walk at Nay Aug Park.

Registration will take place at 9:00 am at Schimelfenig Pavilion by the water park with both the chip timed race and untimed walk to follow at 10:00 am. Interested runners and walkers are encouraged to register in advance for a discount on the registration fee and all participants who register before May 16th will be guaranteed a complimentary event t-shirt.

Proceeds will benefit the NEPA ALS Foundation, which raises money for ALS support, awareness, and research for local families affected by the disease.

“ALS is a destructive and debilitating disease that most people don’t know a lot about, yet it affects people all around us, explains Matt Swartz, president of the NEPA ALS Foundation and Community Office Manager of Wayne Bank’s Central Scranton Branch. “Because research for ALS and other neuromuscular diseases is underfunded, treatments have not progressed and no cure has been found. One of our main goals with the race is to help spread ALS awareness and we welcome everyone to come out and join in the run or walk so that together as a community we can shine a light on the need for more attention and research dollars to find a cure.”
