ABOUT THE SWCC 5K RUN

Since 2008, the Southwest Center City 5K Run has served the area as a healthy, community-building event. In addition to hosting hundreds of participants, the event gives back to the community through its non-profit, SWCC Run, Inc., contributing to beautification initiatives. Everyone is welcome to join us by walking, running or rolling in the event!

2014 DONATION

Year after year, the SWCC 5k Run has a history of donating money to beautify and improve the South West Center City neighborhood.

This year, all proceeds will be donated to the Friends of Chester Arthur (FoCA) to support fitness programming and projects at the Chester A Arthur school. FoCA was formed by Southwest Center City parents and community members who are committed to partnering with the Chester Arthur in order to foster a robust learning environment for our neighborhood children.
