Registration at Scott Middle School opens at  8 a.m., with the event starting at 9 a.m.

Proceeds from the Festive 5K Run/ Walk benefit the Coatesville Youth Initiative (CYI). The goal is to raise over $60,000 for the CYI that will be used to encourage and support young people in the Coatesville area by engaging youth in experiences that support their success in school and in life, and by uniting a wide range of partners to make the community better for everyone. The Coatesville Youth Initiative is committed to training youth leaders, enhancing family relationships, building community collaboration, and encouraging prevention education.
