A local philanthropic organization is hosting a fundraiser this weekend to raise scholarship money for high school seniors in Leavenworth County.
The local chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha is hosting the second annual Leavenworth Awareness Walk on Saturday morning in the parking lot of Play Bounce & Jump, 20th and Spruce streets.
The event features walks of varying distances, including 3K, 5K and 10K.
There will be a disc jockey playing music throughout the morning as well as games and activities for children.
Representatives of several local organizations will attend the event and distribute information about their programs.
Last year’s benefit walk helped to support four scholarships for Leavenworth County seniors.
Registration will be held from 7-7:45 a.m. Saturday. The event begins at 8 a.m.
Entry fee is $20 per person and includes a T-shirt, drinks, fruit and a chance to win raffle prizes.
Participants can sign up at Play Bounce & Jump or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
