Join us for our morning FUNdraiser at Somers Library Foundation’s 7th Annual 5K Trail Run and 1-Mile Family Fun Run in Reis Park. Run, walk or jog through the park and surrounding nature trails to show your support for the Somers Library. Refreshments on hand after the race, and an awards ceremony will announce the top 5K runners in each age and gender category. All ages and abilities welcome!

Thanks to our event sponsors and your participation, the Library Foundation is able to fund improvements that make our great Library even better. We pay for projects that increase the Library’s versatility and functionality, and we continue to raise money to remodel the Children’s Room and other areas in the building.

Following the Family Fun Run, the Somers Education Foundation will host a chili cook-off in the Reis Park pavilion from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Tasting mugs will be priced at $10 each. Visit SEF for more information.
