SHOHOLA - A member of Boy Scout Troop 76 in Shohola, Joey Loughney is working to raise awareness for the troop's second annual Shohola-Barryville Bridge 5K Run/Walk. The race will be a kick off to the Pumpkins in the Park community event that is held each October in Shohola.
The 5K Run/Walk will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday October 19th at Rohman Park in Shohola. The race's course winds through Shohola Township, across the Shohola-Barryville Bridge, through Barryville and finishes at Rohman Park.
Additionally, the "Kids’ K" will run entirely in Rohman Park. For race entry registration, go to
The Shohola-Barryville Bridge Run/Walk is the biggest fundraiser of the year for Troop 76. Without it, the scouts couldn't do many of the merit badges projects, cover the cost of summer camp and have the necessary camping equipment. And so, sponsors are needed for the race. To learn more about sponsoring the event, visit the website and click on the sponsor tab. Sponsors are invited to set up a table at the finish line to publicize their business.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Ecumenical Food Pantry of Pike County.
