Wayne Bank Supports Scranton Half Marathon Participants

Scranton, PA – On Sunday, April 10, Wayne Bank employees spent the morning cheering on and providing bananas for close to 3,000 participants in the Scranton Half Marathon.

Stationed in front of Wayne Bank’s downtown Scranton Office, on Adams Avenue across from the Courthouse, bank employees, led by Community Office Manager Matthew Swartz, distributed over 60 pounds of bananas to potassium-starved runners. “We were out to cheer on all of the participants, but especially Wayne Bank’s own Senior Vice President and Director of Human Resources, Ryan French. We wanted to make sure that Ryan got some much needed calories at our location on mile 5.5 of the challenging 13.1 mile course,” explained Matt.

The Scranton Half Marathon is a great event that benefits the continued development of the Lackawanna River Heritage Trail, part of a seventy mile multi-purpose trail system that follows the Lackawanna River. A recreational treasure in the County, the trail continues to grow in both length and popularity.
