Whether you’re running, walking, or just looking for a good excuse to celebrate our wonderful community – come out and join us on Friday evening, June 2nd on Park Avenue in Swarthmore!


We are excited to announce the 2nd annual “Swing for the Fences 5K” Run/Walk, scheduled for 7:00PM on Friday, June 2nd in Swarthmore.  This fundraising event will once again help us improve safety features at local athletic fields. 


With funds raised last year, we are now on the cusp of building brand new dugouts at Hepford Park.  It’s a great start and moves us one step closer to our ultimate goal of building new dugouts at ALL of our baseball/softball fields!
