Diversified Group is proud to again be a sponsor of the Camphill Village 5K Trail & Fun Run coming up on Saturday, May 13th! This event will take place at beautiful Camphill Village in Copake, NY and it starts at 10am with both a competitive 5k Trail Run as well as a casual run/walk for all ages and all abilities. If you are interested in participating, here are the options available that allow you to join and participate from virtually anywhere:
- 5K Option: Runners participating in the 5K portion will receive a map and have opportunities to grab water along the way! The track has some challenging hills, and runners enjoy the scenery of the Village: gardens, woods, pastures, and orchards throughout their 5K run.
- Fun Run Option: Those who participate in the Fun Run portion will take a more leisurely lap around the Ring Road in the Village. This road is a great way to get outside with your strollers, your kids, and mobility aids. Enjoy the gardens, ponds, and farm animals along the way. This portion truly is for ALL ABILITIES!
- Virtual Option: We’d never forget our long-distance virtual participants! Camphill Village has friends all over the country, whether they’re former residential coworkers who keep Camphill in their hearts, or even siblings and cousins of our community members. Each year, people have taken to their own city blocks, treadmills, and scenic rail trails, showing their support on social media using the hashtag #Camphill5K.
- Sponsor the race or sponsor a runner!
With these options, it’s easy to support this wonderful cause. Through sponsorships, donations and registrations, this 5K and Fun Run will help to provide the programs and services that make Camphill Village the very special place it is for adults with special needs.
Diversified Group is proud to again support this event that attracts friends from all over the country! Since 2016, the Camphill Village 5k Trail and Fun Run has raised over $110,000 to support Camphill Village’s mission and benefit the lives of people who call Camphill Village their home.
