Resident Driven Impact - 5K Walk 'n Run
Tony V., a resident of Seola Gardens approached various neighborhood non-profits about an idea he had for a neighborhood 5K run. With the support of local organizations, including the WCCDA, the White Center 5K Walk & Run was started in 2011 and is now a community-led annual tradition!
The 5k Walk 'N Run benefits White Center by:
Promoting healthy lifestyles.
Building a sense of community.
Raising money for good causes.
Our residents and partners have been stellar in guiding our strategies and keeping us accountable to priorities of the White Center Community. WCCDA believes we can do things bigger and better together.
