The Pay-Less Markets Community Foundation presented a check of over $16,000 to the 2020 Kick the Fat 5K/10K beneficiaries — Duk Duk Goose Inc., Snake Pit Wrestling Academy Guam, Mañe’lu and the UOG Endowment Foundation.
The remaining donations were distributed amongst other non-profit organizations.
In August 2019, PMCF launched the 2020 Kick the Fat 5K/10K Mini Grant geared towards supporting non-profit organizations seeking funding for upcoming projects focusing on the health and wellness of the local community.
The grant amount was contingent upon the funds raised through the 2020 Kick the Fat 5K/10K Run/Walk & Community Fair.
On Saturday, January 25, the foundation hosted the successful event which brought out more runners than previous years.
The 2020 Kick the Fat 5K/10K race and Wellness Festival was an outstanding success with almost 3,000 participants enjoying an early morning shower of confetti and fireworks along with upbeat music.
Treats included dri-fit shirts, goody bags containing drinks, fruit and other snacks, and most importantly, the satisfaction of completing a great and exciting run/walk.
