The Hit the Street for Little Feet 5K has become a cherished tradition in the Manchester community, promoting health, fitness, and togetherness while raising funds for the Manchester Memorial School.  This year’s event promises to be better than ever before, with exciting activities planned for participants of all ages.

“We couldn’t be happier to bring back our annual 5K,” said, Principal of the Manchester Memorial Elementary School. “This event not only supports our school but also fosters a sense of community that extends beyond the classroom. We look forward to seeing everyone out there running, walking, or simply enjoying the day with us.”

In addition to the 5K race, the MMPTO is currently seeking local entrepreneurs to participate as vendors during the post-race festival.  This provides an excellent opportunity for companies to connect with families while supporting a worthy cause.  Interested parties should contact the MMPTO via their website for more information about vendor participation or email
