Welcome to the first ever Back Mountain Kiwanis Virtual 5K & 10K Bunny Hop! This event allows you to simply run/walk/jog a 5K (3.1 miles) or 10K ( 6.2 miles) anytime and anywhere during the Spring, starting April 1st and ending May 31st. Practice social distancing by choosing your location, whether on a treadmill or in your neighborhood, and help out two amazing causes - The Back Mountain Memorial Library and the Back Mountain Kiwanis Club Community Service Projects.
The Back Mountain Memorial Library located in Dallas, Pennsylvania serves a population of 36,845; which includes 9 municipalities, 2 school districts, and, in addition, provides a used book store. The Back Mountain Memorial Library recently celebrated its 75th year of service to the Back Mountain Community!
The Back Mountain Kiwanis Club is part of a global volunteer organization dedicated to improving the world “one child and one community at a time”. We are making transformative changes in the Back Mountain community and are inspiring youth to follow in our footsteps. As such, our members dedicate their time to supporting children, families, and individuals in the communities of the Back Mountain, through hands-on service projects and fundraising efforts. We participate in service projects for Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge, Adopt-a-Highway, the CEO Food Bank, Trunk-or-Treat at the Luzerne Co. Fairgrounds, Lake Fest, just to name a few. Fundraisers have included Krispy Kreme sales, a Psychic Night event to benefit the Victims Resource Center, and a Trivia evening to benefit Toys for Tots. Finally, the Back Mountain Kiwanis Club proudly sponsors a Harvey's Lake t-ball team and participates in Kiwanis International’s Early Childhood Learning Initiative. Our club is limited only by our members’ imaginations!
