It’s not too late to join hundreds of runners, and maybe a few leprechauns, as they participate in this fun-filled 5K. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day by supporting Diakonia, a local charity that provides resources, food, clothing and shelter to families in Worcester County and on the Lower Shore trying to rebuild their lives. If you don’t want to run, come out to support the runners. And come for the post-race celebration at Shenanigan’s Irish Pub.
