CUMBERLAND — All manner of ghouls and goblins will hit the Pennsy Trail this weekend for a good cause.
The inaugural Monster Dash 5K run/walk will be held Saturday, with proceeds benefitting the Cumberland Police Department.
Proceeds will be divided among several department initiatives, including the CPD scholarship fund, which provides about $3,000 annually to college-bound high school students, and the CPD K-9 program. Proceeds will also go toward officer training.
Attendees are invited to don their best costumes for the event, which kicks off at 9 a.m. Registration begins an hour before in the west parking lot of Meijer in Cumberland, 11351 E. Washington St.
Cost of the run is $20 per participant, but kids 5 and under are invited to run in a short kids’ race for free at 10 a.m. Pets – especially those in costume – are also welcome.
