FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – People were able to give back to the community while getting their steps in at an event on Saturday.

A Fort Wayne organization held its second annual community 5K walk/run for a family-friendly fundraising event at The Shepherd’s Hand Community Outreach Center.

Organizers said this year’s goal is to raise money for another basketball hoop after last year’s event raised enough for one. The basketball court is then expected to be installed in the church’s parking lot for the community to have a place to exercise and rejuvenate.

You don’t have to run a race to get involved- there are also opportunities to volunteer your time, sponsor someone, or share the outreach events with others. Those interested in volunteering are asked to email the center directly at or use the contact form on the event website.

Start times for the race were divided by age, in time slots between 10 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. The cost was $20 per person to participate, and registration was online.

The outreach center is at 1231 S Anthony Blvd. in Fort Wayne.
