Wayne Bank Supports Third Annual NEPA 5K Run for ALS

Scranton, PA – On Saturday, June 18th, The NEPA ALS Foundation hosted the third annual NEPA 5k for ALS Run along with a 1 Mile Walk at Nay Aug Park, in which Wayne Bank was a Presenting Sponsor.

All proceeds benefitted the NEPA ALS Foundation, which raises money for ALS support, awareness, and research for local families affected by the disease.

Wayne Bank’s Central Scranton Community Office Manager, Matt Swartz, is president of the NEPA ALS Foundation and, along with his fellow board members, worked tirelessly in the months preceding the race to plan and organize this outstanding event.

“We are thrilled with the success of this year’s race,” stated Matt. “We had a record number of participants this year in seeing over 450 people come out to support putting an end to this terrible disease. One of our main goals with the race is always to help spread awareness for ALS since research is so underfunded, and it’s amazing to see how much we’ve been able to grow this year.”
