To combat utility shut-offs, Community Action of Allegan County (CAAC) will be holding a Walk for Warmth 5k Run/Walk on Saturday, March 16 from 9am-11am. The walk will take place at the Lynx Golf Course in Otsego.

Money raised from walker registration and sponsorship support will go directly to Community Action of Allegan County’s Utility Assistance Program. The program assists income eligible households by providing payment for metered and deliverable fuel bills in order to avert a household crisis. Last year alone, CAAC helped 177 families prevent power shut off notices.

This is a family friendly untimed run/walk. Adult registration is $35 and includes a long sleeve quarter zip athletic shirt. Children ages 5-12 can attend for $15 and children under 5 are free to participate. All proceeds assist families in Allegan County facing utility shut-off notices.
