Thank a Farmer Dash

When: November 18, 2023
Where: Ebensburg, PA

Thank your local farmers by participating in the second annual Thank a Farmer Dash, 5k, 10k, and Family Fun Walk!!!

November is a time for giving thanks for all of the things in our lives. The bountiful feast that we will all enjoy on Thanksgiving is the result of the hard work of farmers. Locally grown food looks and tastes better, is better for you, preserves genetic diversity, is safe, supports local families, builds a strong community, preserves open space, reduces taxes, and invests in our future! Unfortunately, despite all of these great benefits, small farms are disappearing at an alarming rate! It is up to us to change this!

To support our small farmers in Cambria and Indiana counties, we’ve set up a fund at the Community Foundation for the Alleghenies. The purpose of the fund is to provide small grants to support business plan development that focuses on sustainable (profitable) farming models, including providing match funding for sustainable farming projects and the development of conservation best management practices.

All proceeds from this race are deposited in this fund for future grant-making and support for our local small farmers. Join us for a great event while supporting a vital cause! Because of you, in 2023, we were able to award our FIRST two grants of $1,500 each to the Mytrysak Family Tree Farm and Mother Earth Farm to support different components of their individual business plan models.
