Trust us, you really don’t want to miss when Jimmy and Lisa give it a try.

We’ve all been playing, or have at least heard about the popular new video game Pokémon Go. Instead of sitting on the couch all day, this game is encouraging people go outside and walk around to “catch em’ all.” Jeff Murphy, of Seaford, Del., decided to take it one step further by organizing a Pokémon Go 5k walk to raise money for the fight against childhood obesity. It’s called the Pokémon Go 5k Walk for our Future, and will take place on Sunday, July 31 at 9 a.m. The 5k will start at the Ocean City inlet. The event is free to participate but donations are encouraged. All of the money raised will go to the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Keep checking back at the event’s Facebook page for parking information and other updates.
The Delaware KIDS (Kids In Distressed Situations) Fund is also having a 5-k! On Saturday, August 13, in Dewey Beach, Del., you can come out to help fight hunger in Delaware. Director of Marketing for Harvey, Hanna, and Associates, Ryan Kennedy stops by to tell us more about the fund and events coming up. Registration for the Inaugural Que Pasa 5-k is $25.00 prior to the race and $30.00 on the day of, and begins at 7 a.m., at the Que Pasa Restaurant in Dewey. The race starts at 8 a.m. There will also be a post-race beach party at Que Pasa with a DJ, raffle, food and beverages, on-site massages, and amenities for the kids. Proceeds will be donated directly to various youth emergency food relief programs.
