Eat and run ... or run and eat

April 25, 2014 - Rob Weaver
I've noticed an interesting trend in fundraisers lately. Increasingly, they involve running and walking, usually over a 5-kilometer course.

In fact, the Leadership Seneca County Class of 2014 plans to sponsor a 5K for runners, walkers or cyclists at 8 a.m. Saturday to raise funds for Leadership Park.

There have been so much fundraising footwork lately that, last month, the YMCA offered 5K training classes on Saturday mornings.

And that's a good thing. Because another popular way to raise money for a worthy cause is to feed people.

For example, the Tiffin Optimist Club is offering the Ron Myers Breakfast 8 a.m.-noon Sunday in the Junior Fair Building at the Seneca County Fairgrounds. All-you-can-eat pancakes and sausage will cost adults $6, and seniors and pre-teens $4. Kids younger than 3 can eat free.

All proceeds will support youth programs and community service projects.

Later that day, a new nonprofit, Helping Our Patrons Everywhere, is to host a spaghetti dinner fundraiser 4-7 p.m. in the Knights of Columbus ballroom in Tiffin. The meal will cost $10 for adults and $6 for youths age 6 and younger. Again, toddlers eat for free.

It would be a good plan, from a caloric-intake perspective, to burn off some energy at the 5K before partaking of a carb-rich fundraising meal.
