Our Beneficiaries


Beginning Saturday, August 29 through September 5, 2020.


Shirt pick up has been announced!  

Shirts can be picked up on Friday, 9/4, from 3-7:00 p.m. at the Main Street Park and Pavilion, 301 Market Street, under the pavilion. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing if there is a line.


The 27th Kentlands/Lakelands 5K Run, Walk and Kid’s Fun Runs has become a virtual "race" due to the emergency conditions surrounding COVID-19.  A virtual event means that everyone can participate by doing their walk or run on their own (following social distancing guidelines).  We recommend you do not try to complete the race on the official course in order to maintain physical distancing requirements.  Also, we remind you that roads will not be closed as in usual race years.  Virtual runners will be able to pick up their shirt in the days prior to the race or they can pay for shipping and the shirt will be shipped after the race date.

Please support our charities by signing up and donating if you can. Our charities include the City of Gaithersburg Dolores Swoyer Camp Scholarship Fund, The Dwelling Place, Mercy Health Clinic, Maryland Senior Olympics, and a scholarship fund for art classes at the Gaithersburg Arts Barn.  The Foundation Board of Directors is determined to maintain its giving to these worthy race beneficiaries.
