Jessup Lonza Club Meat Run – Peckville, PA

September 7 @ 9:00 am

2nd Annual Jessup Lonza Club 5k Run and 1 Mile Walk –

The Jessup Lonza Club was formed in 2022 as a means of bringing people together through Italian cuisine and culture. While enjoying unique fare and libations, we are able to connect with loved ones and strangers alike to revel in shared stories and create new memories. We do not take these experiences for granted and we recognize that, for many, having the time and resources may seem like a privilege only others can afford.

There is no better way to connect with our community and neighbors than by contributing to our health and wellness while also helping those in need by donating to a 100% volunteer-run mutual aid organization. This event will benefit Fruits & Roots which was established in August of 2023 as a community refrigerator project located outside of the Valley Community Library in Peckville, PA. The volunteer-run mutual aid organization hosts primarily fruits and vegetables in order to provide nutritious and fresh alternatives/accompaniments to the shelf-stable items found in food pantries. Fruits & Roots strives to nourish the 12.7% of Lackawanna County who are food insecure.
