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.
