Crush Your Run 5k

Food trucks, games, and fun for a cause – you’re invited to the official Crush Your Run 5K kickoff event!

Newark, DE, September 17, 2019 – Placers, Delaware’s leading staffing and recruiting agency, invites you to the official registration kickoff event for their annual Crush Your Run 5K benefiting Preston’s March! The event will take place on Thursday, September 26 from 5:30-7:30 pm at 1501 Casho Mill Road in Newark. To register for the kickoff event, just visit this page.

The kickoff marks the opening of registration for Placers’ 3rd annual Crush Your Run 5K race which will take place on Saturday, April 4th. All proceeds from the race benefit local non-profit, Preston’s March. This organization was founded to answer the overwhelming need for adaptive recreational equipment for children with disabilities so that they may experience the fun, freedom, and health benefits that all children should be granted.

Last year, more than 800 runners/walkers participated in the Crush Your Run 5K and 20 adaptive bikes were presented to children in need. Are you ready to be part of a record-breaking turnout and donation this year?

If so, bring your family and friends to the kickoff packed with fun for all ages! After you register for next spring’s Crush Your Run 5K, go grab a bite to eat from a food truck, join in on the games, and watch as an adaptive bike is gifted to an incredibly deserving child – Aidan.

Aidan is an 11-year old with Down Syndrome who does not let anything stand in his way. Since he was six years old, he has participated in public readings and demonstrations in front of audiences or over 150 people! An inspiration to all, Aidan believes that he is a superhero (not a person with a disability) and takes it upon himself to brighten everyone’s day with handshakes, fist bumps, and hugs.

“Here at Placers, making a difference within the community will always be central to everything that we do – service is one of our guiding values,” said Chris Burkhard, President of Placers. “Through our annual Crush Your Run 5K, we enable other businesses and community members to give back in an extremely rewarding way. You never forget how these kids’ faces light up when they receive their adaptive bikes. It’s magic, and everyone at the race is critical to making those moments happen.”

Placers is currently seeking generous donors to sponsor and present an adaptive bike to a child in need after the race! For more information on how you can become a sponsor, please email Adrienne Mayberry at To register for the Crush Your Run 5K kickoff event please visit this page.
