New Manchester 5K Run/Walk Raising Money “For the Kids”

A 5K Run/Walk fundraiser is coming up this Saturday in Manchester. Local residents Jenny Boeding and Amanda Solomon say it’s a way to raise money for the University of Iowa Children’s Hospital. Both girls are involved with the University of Iowa’s Dance Marathon and they wanted to extend the fundraising spirit to Manchester.

The money that is raised helps sick children and their families in big ways.

The girls have organized a 5K Run/Walk in Manchester this Saturday, with proceeds going to the Children’s Hospital’s families.

For more information or to sign up, go to or contact Manchester City Hall. And here’s a map of the 5K:
