Greenwood Lake will be presenting its inaugural 5K event on August 9th to support local families in need. The event, a 5k combination walk & run as well as a children’s fun run, is hosted by the GWL Elks Lodge and financially supported by the GWL Lions Club (Largest sponsor), as well as numerous businesses and residents in and around out Village.
The 5k will begin at Thomas Morahan Waterfront Park at 9:00am, with signups at 7:30am, and will head through the Village, around the arm of the lake concluding back at the Waterfront Park with light refreshments for participants. Immediately after the 5k the “Kids’ Fun Run” will begin at 11:00am at the GWL Park next to CVS on the track that was donated by the GWL Lions Club.
