WAMDA Celebrates 30 Years of the 5k Run/Walk

Each year, WAMDA hosts the 5k Run/Walk to benefit The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts. This year we celebrate 30 years by holding both a live and virtual event on March 4th at Look Park in Northampton with the addition of live music and food trucks.

COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on food insecurity throughout our nation. The Western Area Massachusetts Dietetic Association (WAMDA) wants to do our part in helping with this problem by making this year's race and donation to The Food Bank of Western Massachusetts, our biggest yet.
