MetroCast fundraiser supports veterans


MetroCast Communications, a video, internet and phone provider, in Berwick, will host its sixth ‘MetroCast Giving Back 5K Run/Walk’ 9 a.m., April 8, at Summerhill Volunteer Fire Company, 422 Summerhill Road, Berwick.

Proceeds will go to veterans through the Wilkes-Barre VA Hospital, which provides transportation services, social service assistance, rehabilitation equipment, recreation programs, activities, homeless veteran’s services, holiday gifts and more.

Registration is 7:30 to 8:45 a.m. and the entry fee is $25 prior to race day. The course is challenging for experts, yet easy enough for walkers. All ages are invited.

Medals will be awarded for the top-three- men and women finishers in each of 14 age categories and trophies will be awarded for the top-three- men and women overall. A complimentary hot breakfast will be served after the race.
