The 11th Annual Shamrock Shuffle, hosted by The Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty, will be held Saturday, March 18, 2017 at The Square at Union Centre. Along with a chip-timed 5k and 10k, the Shamrock Shuffle offers an untimed 5k Family Race with a later start time, children’s activities, beer obstacle course and Breakfast and Block Party… all with a purpose of bringing people together to have fun and support the community. Last year the event attracted nearly 5,000 participants and raised more than $100,000.
Proceeds from the event support the Community Foundation of West Chester/Liberty’s Community Grants Fund, as well as, the many different charities who benefit when a group register a team through the Shuffle Gives Back program. Shuffle Gives Back allows non-profit organizations to register a team to raise money for their cause, without having to collect pledges from friends and family. Teams receive a $250.00 grant for the first 25 people who register on their team and $10.00 for each additional person. In 2015, $32,000 was granted out through the Shuffle Gives Back program.
** The Beer Obstacle Course will be ran from 9:30am-11:30am. You can do the timed 5k/10k and then participate in this event after your race.
