DESCRIPTION

The Borough of Bridgeport is very excited to announce that we will be hosting our 3rd Annual Bridgeport 5K. The Bridgeport 5K will have two beneficiaries this year – the Montgomery County Hero Fund and the ALS Association. Once again, we will welcome runners throughout the region to “test their skills on our hills” and join us in supporting two wonderful charities.

Established in 1985, The ALS Association is the only national non-profit organization fighting ALS on every front. By leading the way in global research, providing assistance for people with ALS through a nationwide network of chapters, coordinating multidisciplinary care through certified clinical care centers, and fostering government partnerships, The Association builds hope and enhances quality of life while aggressively searching for new treatments and a cure.

The Montgomery County Hero Fund is a 501 (C)(3) corporation that was founded in 2012 by Sharon and Sean E. Cullen in response to the murder of Officer Brad Fox of the Plymouth Township Police Department and United States Marine Corps (Ret.). The purpose of the fund is to provide immediate and ongoing relief and services to any Law Enforcement Officer, Military Personnel, Firemen, Paramedics and/or first Responders or their loved ones as a result of tragedy on duty in or in service of the people of Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.

The mission of the Bridgeport 5K is to showcase our town to visitors and residents alike, encourage volunteerism, and provide a different, challenging, and unique course for avid runners and walkers alike. 

The 2019 Bridgeport 5K will include a 5K run/walk, a Kids Fun Run, live entertainment and race ceremony. This event will be staged outdoors in Bridgeport. Registration will begin at 7:30am, the 5K will commence at 9:00am, and the Kids Run Fun will start after the 5K has concluded. Additionally, in honor of the involvement of the Montgomery County Hero Fund this year, we are encouraging participants to dress up as their favorite hero! Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, so whether your Hero is Captain America, a Police Officer, a Firefighter, or your Grandfather, show your spirit and compete as your favorite Hero! Costumes are optional, not required.
