The theme this year is SUPERHEROES, come with your cape and everything superhero related as we celebrate heroes of White Center.
The 5K Walk and Run has four main objectives: 1) Promote the positive and diverse culture that thrives in White Center 2) Help to Promote local White Center businesses 3) Promote a healthy lifestyle 4) Unify the White Center Community
In conjunction with these objectives we hope to raise money for three long time organizations devoted to empowering the White Center community. ____________________________ White Center Community Development Association http://www.wccda.org/
The mission of the White Center Community Development Association (White Center CDA) is to promote a vibrant neighborhood and high quality of life for White Center residents and stakeholders through the development of authentic leadership opportunities, and community-led, neighborhood initiatives. We acccomplish this through our three lines of business: neighborhood revitalization, family development, and community building. ____________________________ YES Foundation of White Center http://www.yfwc.org/
The YES foundation of White Center exists to address the social, economic, educational, physical, and spiritual needs of youth in the White Center area. By developing programs and partnering with other organizations, we provide kids with positive role models and powerful life experiences to encourage their hope and vision for the future. ____________________________ White Center Food Bank http://www.whitecenterfoodbank.org/
The White Center Food Bank (WCFB) began in the mid-1970's as an emergency response to assist struggling families and individuals in the greater White Center and Highline areas during a major economic downturn.
